On Demand Writing

The On Demand Writing assessment will be given on Wednesday, May 3rd to ALL 11th grade students. The test consists of a 40 minute stand alone writing prompt and also a 90 minute passage based writing prompt.


This testing extends slightly into 3rd block, so juniors will be arriving to their 3rd block classes a little late. Please allow them to eat lunch if your class has already gone. There will be no announcements during testing. The AP Literature Exam is also going on at the same time, so please make sure you know where you should be if displaced from your classroom. An On Demand schedule has been sent from Mischa Brainard.

AP Testing

Over the next 2 weeks, students will be taking the AP Exams that they have prepared all year for. These AP Exams will be given in various classrooms in the math/science wing of the building. This causes some classes to be displaced into different parts of the building. Please be aware of these changes to the regular schedule and be patient with students and teachers as they try to adjust.


There will be no bells during this 2 week period. Look for these schedules from Mischa Brainard and Doug Grider.
