3rd Quarter Testing Opportunities

Here is a list of testing opportunities for 3rd quarter. These do not all pertain to the Junior Class but it gives a good understanding of what there is to come. The big ones I want our class to focus on is the FSA and Algebra retakes (for those who need it) as well as the SAT Reportable test for all 11th graders on 3/1. This SAT is free and students can have it sent to the colleges of their choice.

River Ridge High School Assessments

Remember, if you need to sit or pass certain tests for a graduation requirement make sure you talk with Mrs. Makris, Coach Baker, or myself. There ACT and SAT that can serve as concordant score, as other opportunities to satisfy testing graduation requirements.
