How can Leander ISD parents support students in managing the SAT?

  1. Ensure your student is using The Official SAT Practice and linking their most recent PSAT scores. Per College Board, students who spent 20 hours on Official SAT Practice saw an average gain of 115 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT.

  2. Help your student create a study schedule and hold them accountable for sticking to it.

  3. Register your student to take a full-length SAT practice test.


LISD high school campuses offer mock SAT practice exams for a fee. Please see campus websites for more information. There are also full-length practice exams on The Official SAT Practice website.


Encouraging your student to practice will help him or her defeat mental blocks and have a positive mindset when taking the SAT.
