  • Calling ALL Juniors, Seniors, Parents, Grandparents, and PSHS Alumni: Please Join Your Plano Senior High School PTSA!

PTSA annual dues are used to fund college night and so much more. ANYONE can join – students, parents, grandparents, PSHS Alumni, and businesses. Single membership is $15.00 with students being $10.00, and a dual family membership is $25.00. Did you know that students who join BOTH their JUNIOR and SENIOR year are eligible for scholarships?

  • 3 Reasons to take College Practice Tests


  1. Help you see if you are studying the right things. A practice test can help you find what you’re good at and what you still need to work on, so you can focus on topics that will improve your score.
  2. Let you practice your approach. When you take a practice test, you can see the words and format that are used in each section. You can improve your test scores by making a plan about how you will approach each type of question. The best way to figure out what works best for you is to practice.
  3. Can save you time during the official test. Anyone taking the SAT or ACT “cold,” meaning without any practice, will have to take time figuring out how the test works, what kind of answers are needed, and how things change between sections. If you've already taken a practice test (or 2), you won't have to waste time with any of that. You'll know how to get through the test with the least amount of wasted time.


Register today at: https://planoptsa.membershiptoolkit.com/Princeton_Review_Practice_Exams for any one of these practice tests on September 26: ACT, SAT, new SAT, new PSAT, and Startup (combo SAT/ACT).
