100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know
The folks at American Heritage Dictionary have created a list of 100 words every high school student should know. They make it clear on their page that this is not intended to be an exhaustive list.

Check it out. Can you use each word in a sentence? If you are not sure of a word’s definition, click it.
