The PSAT/NMSQT is a preliminary test for the SAT. It is the test which can qualify a student for the National Merit Scholarship Competition as a junior. The PSAT/NMSQT was given at the High School on Wednesday, October 16th to all Juniors and Sophomores.
Freshman will be taking PSAT 8/9 on Wednesday, October 16th. The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.
PSAT scores will be available for students to view beginning in December from College Board. There will be a parent meeting about understanding PSAT scores on Wednesday, January 15th at 7 pm in the Middle School Cafeteria.
