Back to School Essentials for High School Students

by on August 24, 2012 6:21 AM

To ensure success, high school students should be prepared for any assignment by having all the necessary school supplies.

Like elementary and middle school students, high school students still need basic supplies such as pencils, notebooks and a backpack, but because of the demands of high school education, addition supplies are also needed. Technology will play a much bigger role in high school learning, but check with the high school before buying expensive electronics.

Supplies:

Backpack

No. 2 pencils (wooden, mechanical or both)

Netbook (smaller than a laptop, many high school classes require a large amount of computer work)

Erasers (large pink or pencil cap)

Highlighters

Notebooks for each class (most high schools do not supply)

Binders or folders for each class (most high schools do not supply)

Loose leaf paper for notes and homework (some teachers may require this instead of notebook paper)

Flash drive

Graph paper (a requirement for many high school math classes)

Organizer/planner to record homework and test dates

Paper clips

Stapler

Pocket dictionary

Thesaurus

Scientific calculator/graphing calculator

Protractor

Ruler marked with English and metric measurements

Compass

Index cards (make great flashcards for study sessions)

Foreign Language Dictionary

Hand sanitizer
