PSAT for Parents

Image result for psat"
Every year in October, our 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, or PSAT. Like the SAT, it measures the knowledge and skills in reading, writing, and math students learn in the classroom—the same knowledge and skills your child needs to succeed in college and career.
After your child takes the October PSAT/NMSQT, their scores will be available online in mid-December. If your child has a College Board online account, they'll get an email saying their scores are ready to view on the Student Score Reports website. We will also be providing a printed report for students in early January.

If you want to log in yourself to see your child's score report, use the email and password your child used when they set up their College Board online account. Once your child gets their score report, they should sit down with you and go over it. That way, you both know what to focus on to be ready for college. Scores will also provide a reference for students to take advantage of online resources that focus on needed skills through Khan Academy. Score reports also indicate suitable AP or grade-level courses to take in the future.
