Textbook Ordering for the Middle School

Please view the departmental tabs above to find the textbook ordering options available for classes.


Ordering Information

This year books may be purchased from a variety of sources to include iBooks, Amazon and MBS Direct. In some cases, especially for Ninth Graders, the electronic version of texts will be required. In other cases, students may choose either the electronic or print version. Below are some simple requirements for the various vendors:

iBooks: Make sure you have an Apple ID and click on the link using an iPad to make your purchase.

Amazon Kindle eBooks: Make sure you have a Kindle account from Amazon. Kindle books may be purchased from a computer or an eReader (Kindle, iPad) and then sent to a student's device.

MBS is the online bookstore used by Francis Parker. Most of our print textbooks can be purchased through this link. MBS also sells some eBooks and Web Assign computer supplemental material.

Under the course listing, we will list situations where students may choose either the print or the electronic version.

If for any reason, you wish to purchase from another vendor or bookseller, make sure that the edition you purchase matches the edition assigned to the course.
