Lady Trojans Advance to STATE

With a win over Shades Valley this afternoon, the Lady Trojans have secured their spot at STATE! Way to go, girls!! The team will play again at 5 p.m. this evening in the Regional semifinals against the winner of the Mountain Brook/Cullman match. Let's go, Lady Trojans!!

Scantron Testing for Remote Freshmen

Many of our freshmen who are remote students have not been able to take the Scantron test on their school Chromebook because of a pop-up blocker. That pop-up blocker has been removed, so you should now be able to take the test on your school Chromebook! Please try again. We are going to extend the deadline to the end of the day on Sunday, October 25.

***If you have already found another way to take the test on a personal device, please disregard this message.

The state requires that all freshmen take the Reading and Math Scantron tests.

Please click HERE to access login information.

You will also need your student ID number to access the test. This number has already been emailed to you.
