DBHS has partnered with Revolution Prep to provide our students with the opportunity to practice taking college admissions exams while remaining safely at home.


This proctored practice exam is the best way to get a real-time snapshot of testing performance in order to create a testing plan and timeline. This exam is not associated with the college board and will not qualify 11th graders for the NMSQT. Click HERE for NMSQT qualification process.


Sign up at the DBHS Web Store. It is listed under USB Practice Exam.

  • Date: Saturday, February 27, 2021
  • Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm PT
  • Where: Live Online
  • Cost: $20 with activity card $25 without the activity card.
  • Materials and instructions will be emailed to students 24 hours before the exam.
  • Every Revolution Prep practice exam comes with a free 30-minute score report review to assess specific strengths and areas of improvement. We highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity.
DBHS California Scholarship Federation (CSF), a chapter of the CSF organization, is the only school-sanctioned club on campus that rewards its members with scholarship opportunities. We firmly believe in the organization’s motto, “Scholarship for service,” and hope to broadly spread this message to the entire student body. With the pandemic obstructing our typical club recruitment activities, we hope to leverage all DBHS-managed digital platforms to reach a broad audience, consisting mainly of current sophomores and juniors.
