repertoire book for high school voice lessons

I am looking for suggestions for repertoire books for both female and male high school voice students to be used in the context of individual lessons. All styles welcome, although the main emphasis, (i.e. building blocks), would be based on bel canto technique.
Looking for repertoire that supports good technique but keeps young singers interested and engaged in the material. I realize this IS the teacher's job, but good materials help!
Website suggestions also welcome. Gracias to all my wise colleagues out there!

In my experience, he BEST series for high school students is the "First Book of ____(Voicing)" published by Hal Leonard.  You can find them on this site:
 
The voice literature in these collections ranges from simple to medium difficult.  There are solos in a variety of languages from various time periods.  There is now Part I, Part II, and Part III in each voicing.  That expands the literature selection for the teacher and students.  You can purchase books with or without accompaniment CD's.
