11th Grade PSAT 10-11-17

The PSAT/NMSQT exam will be given at Scituate High School on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. This is an opportunity for students to take a practice SAT test, which is identical in format to the SAT test used for college admissions. The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is designed to better prepare students for the SAT, and provide an opportunity for students to be exposed to the format, content, structure, and scoring of the assessment.


The October PSAT also serves as the Qualifying Test for the National Merit Scholarship Program, an academic competition program which provides scholarship money, national recognition, and merit rewards to students in their junior year of high school. The program is highly regarded by colleges and universities, and provides students with invaluable opportunities. Students are only eligible for the National Merit Scholarship if they take the PSAT in October of their junior year.


Scituate High School will administer the PSAT/NMSQT to juniors on Wednesday, October 11th. The cost will be $20 per student, which covers the exam, administration fees, scoring, and access to the score portal, allowing students to work digitally to improve their scores for the SAT. Any interested juniors should sign up for the PSAT in guidance beginning Monday, 9/25. Payment must be received by October 3rd. If you need financial assistance to support your student taking this exam, please contact guidance.


We strongly urge all college-bound juniors to take advantage of this opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Hitchings, Director of Guidance, at Kaitlin.hitchings@scituateschoolsri.net or 401-647-4108.

From Science

Students in Human Body Systems (Project Lead the Way) used clay to begin modeling human characteristics on the face of their Manikin. This is an important exercise because students learn to pay attention to detail regarding the size and location of the muscles. Students also began their occupation as Forensic Anthropologists where they need to use metrics to collect data. The end goal is to determine the unidentified persons bones' gender, possible height, age and ethnic background.
