Short Stories for High School

We recommend these stories for high school students due to their literary significance and their potential to deepen students' appreciation for the short story genre. Many of these iconic works are frequently anthologized and serve as common cultural reference points across literature, film, music, and popular culture. These are essential stories that well-read students should know as they prepare for college and life! Short Stories for High School II is our encore collection. You may also enjoy Poetry for Students, Civil War Stories and our collection of 50 Feel Good Stories.
