School Supplies List

Since high school students register for six different classes each semester, we recommend only purchasing basic school supplies until students hear what special needs may be required for their specific classes. For example, students may choose to set up a general notebook for all classes; however, teachers may recommend certain models of a calculator or a particular lab notebook. In many cases, consumable materials are provided at school. Many of our classes use the school-issued Chromebook and electronic forms of note taking, texts, and storage. The list below will help most students get started.

Shorecrest General Supply List:

Option #1:

  • Binder with 6 or more dividers (i.e. English, Math, Social Studies, Science, electives)
  • College ruled loose-leaf paper

Option #2:

  • 5-6 composition or spiral notebooks (i.e. English, Science, Math, Health, Spanish)
  • Folders for handouts


  • Pencil pouch

  • Red or green pen(s) for various note taking and text marking

"Which calculator do I need for math class?"

Are you enrolled in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Financial Algebra, or Bridges to College Math?

Any scientific calculator will work! We like the TI-30xiis or the TI-30xs Multiview, but there are many great options.

Are you enrolled in Pre-Calculus?

You are required to use a TI-30xiis.

Are you enrolled in AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB, or AP Calculus BC?

You are required to use a graphing calculator. We like the TI-84+, but there are several options.

Students should check with their school counselor if they need assistance with any school supplies. A limited number of calculators are available to check out for the year.

Students and families should be aware that there are no lockers at Shorecrest other than the lockers that are issued to students enrolled in PE.
