All 9th-11th grade students at Diamond Ranch will be taking the Preliminary SAT, or PSAT, on October 16th. The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT, and even the ACT, but it's more than just a trial run. PSAT scores are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships. It is also a great tool for us at Diamond Ranch to determine strengths and room for growth in student learning.
More than 3.4 million high school students (mostly juniors and sophomores) take this nationwide, multiple-choice test every year. At Diamond Ranch, all students taking the PSAT (9th - 11th) take it free of charge.
