    Prepare your student for high school.

    '100 Words Every High School Freshman Should Know' focuses on words that nearly every freshman will encounter over the course of the school year. Chosen with various criteria in mind, some represent key concepts in important areas of the curriculum, while others are more familiar in meaning but present challenges of spelling or usage. All are words that students can expect to see regularly in their high school reading and beyond.
    Each word is fully defined and shown in typical contexts with example sentences and quotations, many of which are taken from award-winning authors such as John Knowles, Harper Lee, George Orwell, and Katherine Paterson. Together, these 100 words represent the increasingly sophisticated and complex vocabulary that freshmen must master as they continue their education at the next level.

    The Editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries are a team of professional lexicographers with advanced degrees in various scholarly fields. The editors familiarise themselves with the vocabulary in specific subject areas, collect materials on new developments and usage, and work with expert consultants to ensure that our publications are accurate and up-to-date.
