Rose Hill supports literacy by providing a summer reading program for all students.

Our students get a head start in the fall by coming prepared to discuss books they have read over the summer, and can immediately begin the process of literary analysis.

While you are not required to complete "Summer Reading" and hand in a form on the first day of school as in previous years, we highly recommend you keep reading!
