High school (9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade) usually have to spend lots of time to build vocabulary, especially for those who are planning to test the SAT or ACT test. (Some students' grade 9 is in junior high school or middle school, and they start high school from 10th grade. In this scenario, please take tasks by your actual class.)
In general, high school words are in three groups:
- Spelling words: know them and can spell them correctly to express ideas
- Academic words: used in classes for all subjects, must understand them to get better scores
- Literature words: selected from classics that are recommended to students of the grades, nice to know them
We prepare a relatively hard spelling words list, 500 words for each grade. It's for high school students to evaluate and enhance English vocabulary skills. Besides, we offer another harder word list in the Academic Arts section as a supplement for those who are planning to pursue further academic careers.
We organize word lists by grades at first. In each grade, you can get spelling words, academic words (for Arts), and literature words accordingly. Here tutors and parents can get useful word lists for separate grades and subjects.
Because some high school subjects aren't set by particular grades exactly. We list academic words (for social studies, science, and math) by subjects, not by grades.
If you are new here, please focus on Spelling Words and Arts of Academic
. They are core in high school students' vocabulary.
However, what you get isn't only a set of high school words. It also integrates with lots of interactive tests and exercises, as well as printable worksheets. It's an all-in-one tool to study high school vocabulary, tells you what to learn, when to learn, and how to learn. It's handy for you to be able to access anywhere and anytime through the Internet.
Considering the attributes of different word lists, we have developed various study and exercise tools, such as online cards, interactive exercises, printable cards, and printable quizzes. We show some samples here.
Although we encourage high school students to manage their studying activities, tutors and parents can also produce printable worksheets dynamically to help students to warm-up, review, or quiz.
