October 14, 2020 - PSAT's for Juniors

Juniors will take the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in October. These preliminary tests give students a baseline test score and students who score in the top percentile will qualify for national scholarships.

Students do not need to register in advance for this test. It will be given during the school day and juniors will fill in all registration information the morning of the test. There is no cost associated with the test.

An email with PSAT information will be sent to all Junior parents in mid-September.

Adding/Dropping a Class

Schedule changes should be complete by the end of September. Sometimes students feel they are in the wrong level course, because it is too easy or too hard. Therefore, schedule changes are only made to correct the level of the course, never to change teachers. Consultation with teachers and counselors must be timely in order to meet the September 30 deadline. Once school begins, all schedule changes require parental permission. We urge parents to consider changes carefully for the impact that they have on academic rigor and free time. 

What's ahead for Juniors?

Juniors start the school year by taking the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in October. These preliminary tests give students a baseline test score and students who score in the top percentile will qualify for national scholarships.
