Katrina yes, I'm currently reading ti right now for my 9th grade English class.
Alina Yes actually, we had to read it for our 9th grade English class.
Srikanth No. I read it when i'm in mid twenties and still liked it.
Betelhem Reading all about it. Yes it is. I think we will read it in 10th grade.
k We've been assigned this book for our grade 9 English class. Great book, but terrible work; getting work based off this book makes it not so enjoyable to read and more stressful. Wish me luck on my project and homework. I hope I'll be okay.
Alexandra Sotelo is a boring book.
Astrid I read it last year in my sophmore year
Maya Yes, we will be reading it right now.
Diane Mayernik yes, 8th grade actually!
Elizabeth Pollock Yes! well, not exactly, we read it in 8th grade English which was a grade below high school in my old district.
Kailee Finochiarro woahh this comment section is making me feel so smart. im in 8th grade right now, and our school makes this book required reading for everyone
Abigail Yes. I'm in 8th grade but I take 9th grade Literature and this book is required, along with 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)
Chris Batchelor Yes. It's a staple classic which when I was in school (graduated in 2002) was read in 10th grade. So, yes, it's a classic on the reading list at most local high schools.
Kathleen Holmes Yes, I am currently in 8th grade and just finished it.
phoebe It’s required summer reading for my Honors English II class (10th grade)
Catherine Anne I was going to ask something similar. I had to read it the summer before 10th grade I believe. I'm guessing it's pretty common. I went to a private school then, too. So if you were wondering, it's not just public schools.
Kaitlin I'm reading it and I'm in 7th grade so I guess it goes for that near highschool/highschool range.
Nullifidian I never had to read the book in high school — my teacher chose Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison to cover the same topic — so I didn't end up reading this until my 30s.
Jamie Yes in grade 9 English
Tiffany im reading it for my middle school english class

Tara I read it in year 10 English a few (many!!) years ago
Kaitlin Yeah, I actually read it in seventh grade though! (from Illinois)
Mackensiee I am actually reading this for seventh grade.
Lauren Mangum Yes, hence why I read it. Annotations get quite annoying but the book is excellent! I know I would have enjoyed it more by reading it leisurely instead.
Jacari Yes I am currently reading the book in my 10th grade English class.

And English is not our first language soo....
Lisa Kokx This year it's on a list of English literature we have to choose four books from (oh and English isn't our first language).
