Different eras are good.

I love the Gallegher girls series by Ally Carter(book 1 I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You) and her Heist Society series (book 1 Heist Society)

Sleuth or Dare is another good spy one.

Every Breath is an Aussie reimagining of Sherlock Holmes in a modern setting with two protagonists, 1 male, 1 female.

Kill Game is also the first book in a series.

Heist Society is the first book in a series about a girl who's family are all thieves. She's conned her way into a major boarding school to try to escape her family, except. . . She has to rescue her Father from the FBI and a major crime figure. I believe that there is a crossover between this series and either the Gallagher Girls or The Squad.

Touch of Frost is another one set in a school with the mc a girl.

I tried to stick to YA books since you were looking for a school library.

We've currently got them in our SciFi section but they'll probably get moved.
