PSAT Test Interpretations

The counseling staff went into classrooms this week to interpret the PSAT scores to all the Juniors. Please ask your student about these results!


Given that the SAT is newly revised, we are just as new to the results as you are! Keeping this in mind we are still unsure as to how these numbers will translate into college acceptance . The score sheets provide information about your student's strengths and weaknesses on the PSAT and provides suggestions on how to improve in those areas that are weak for the SAT in April.


During the test interpretation time the counselors helped all the students sign-up for both a College Board account and Khan Academy account. Both accounts are linked to provide each student with a personalized official SAT study guide!!


Happy Test Prep!!
