Welcome to McAuliffe International School! 


To help prepare our students for a successful start to the year, we require independent reading over the summer. The IB learner profile traits include being inquirers, and what better way to demonstrate this trait than reading a great book? As a bonus, research shows that kids who participate in academics during the summer perform significantly better than those who take time off. Each grade level will complete specific tasks for their summer reading, so be sure to click on the appropriate grade for your student.

6th Grade Summer Reading

7th Grade Summer Reading

8th Grade Summer Reading

Take the surveys linked below to enter your book suggestions from your summer reading:
