My daughter is going into 9th grade, and the teachers don't give out supply lists until the first day of school, but i would like to get them before. She is taking Honors English, Honors Global History, Honors Geometry, and AP Enviromental Science.

I am going into 10th grade this year, and had a very similar schedule last year. This list is what I've found worked best:
4 one-inch three ring binders
4 sets of seven binder dividers
4 two pocketed folders
2 packages of loose-leaf paper (college ruled, not wide ruled)
2 large, five subject notebooks
2 boxes of seventy-two pencils
1 package black ballpoint pens
1 package blue ballpoint pens
2 black sharpies
1 pencil sharpener
2 packages eraser caps (the pink type, not the colored type)
1 roomy pencil case
1 backpack (Note: A backpack will work much better for your daughter than any type of shoulder bag, as she will likely be carrying around her supplies all day long and it will be much more comfortable. The brands TheNorthFace, L.L. Bean, and High Sierras are very durable and will last her multiple years)
1 planner (this may seem silly, but a planner is extremely helpful when it comes to remembering test dates and homework assignments)
1 metal waterbottle
This is the ultimate supplies list. If there is something your daughter doesn't seem to need, by all means don't buy it. This is just everything I found handy during my freshman year. I hope this helped!

- No. 2 pencils
- Mechanical pencils
- Colored pencils
- Pencil sharpener (hand-held with a top to collect shavings)
- A large pink eraser
- Ballpoint pens (Get a few red ink ones too, because some teachers have students do peer editing.)
- Spiral-bound or composition notebooks
- Loose-leaf notebook paper (Teachers can be picky about paper. Some ask that students use the college-ruled variety.)
- A ruler with English and metric measurements
- Several three-ring binders (Some teachers require that a binder be used exclusively for their class.)
- A three-hole punch (a regular one or one that fits in a three-ring binder)
- A pencil case that fits in a binder
- Binder dividers (The kinds with pockets are good for loose papers.)
- Pocket folders
- Folders that fit in binders
- A calendar for scheduling assignments
- A sturdy, supportive backpack (Some schools do not permit rolling backpacks because of space considerations, so check with your school before considering this option.)
- Two combination locks (If the school lockers do not have built-in locks, you might need one for the hallway and one for the gym.)
- Flash Drive to save any important documents
- Index cards, ruled and unruled (These are great for making flash cards.)
- A calculator (Check with the math teacher first before investing in an expensive one. Graphing calculators, for example, are required in many high school math classes. Teachers advise parents not to buy a calculator with more functions than students will use.)
*****WHAT TO BRING ON THE FIRST DAY****
Folder - for all the syllabuses, rules, guidelines, & supply lists that your teacher passes out
Pencil - Just in case your asked to do a small activity that involves writing
Paper - Again for the small activity
Locker items - If your locker was already given out to you then it's best to bring your lock & throughout the week you can bring your locker items.
Binder - Just a 1"
Backpack - To carry everything and sometimes teachers give out textbooks
Money - For lunch of something
--And any girl/boy accessories that you may need. (ipod, phones, makeup, brushes, etc.)
It often depends on the teacher of the class. Your daughter is better off waiting for the school year to begin so you don't over-purchase anything. Nevertheless, I'll list the materials I have had for each class:
Honors English: binder or folder, notebook
Honors Global History: folder, notebook
Honors Geometry: binder, notebook, graphing or scientific calculator, protractor, compass, ruler
AP Environmental Science: binder: notebook (maybe 2), calculator
In addition you will also need: looseleaf, writing utensils, pens, erasers, highlighters, possibly colored pencils and markers, index cards, and post-it pads, backpack, and if necessary, an accordion folder to stay organized. You may also want to consider purchasing a graphing calculator as opposed to a regular scientific calculator for mathematics and science. Typically schools recommend TI-84 graphing calculators; you can purchase these on Ebay, Amazon.com, Target, Walmart, and any other office-supply stores.

It always depends on the teacher. I can get by with nothing more than pencils/pens, and one spiral notebook for each subject, but some teachers you HAVE to have what they want (damn binders) so you take care of those and if the others don't care just get a notebook for each class and a folder for each class.
