Interim Reports and PSAT Results Distributed Today

Second quarter interims will be distributed today during Period 3 along with the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) results to eleventh, tenth, and ninth grade students who took the examination in October here at the school. PSAT home reports contain access codes for students to connect with online results. Students will also receive a copy of their test booklets to use as a study tool in preparation for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).  The PSAT examination serves as a predictor of how students are anticipated to perform on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) which is used by many colleges and universities as part of their admission criteria. Please be on the lookout for these PSAT results and materials.
