Sophomore Statement

Oyster River High School~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Winter 2016

PSAT's: All Sophomores will take the PSAT on March 2, 2016

ALL sophomores will take the PSAT 10 on Wednesday, March 2, 2016, free of charge. ORCSD has committed to paying for all sophomore students in lieu of the STAR testing program. This is great news for students since research shows that average SAT scores increase when students take the PSAT as a junior, and increase again when students take the PSAT both junior and sophomore year!

Want to know what the PSAT looks like?

College Visits

Think sophomore year is too early to begin visiting colleges? Think again! Having an idea of what a college campus is like heading into junior year is a great way to get ahead. We have a great campus right in our backyard--UNH. Many ORHS students feel they 'know' UNH, but have never taken an official campus tour. On an official tour, students see the full campus, learn about the many academic programs available, and learn a great deal about student life. To arrange a tour, you simply contact the admissions office. Stop by the Counseling office for help!
