The long years of learning have led to this: standardized testing, which could very well determine where you can or can’t go to college.
“This test determines the rest of my life,” junior Derek Woods said.
On Tuesday morning, April 12, eleventh and ninth graders filed down to the sixth grade wing, marking the start of two months worth of state-mandated standardized testing for students in the Secondary School.
“The PSAT is important, because it gives you an idea of what you need to work on for the real thing,” freshman Jaimee Vizinia said.
The freshmen finished the PSAT around 11:30, while the juniors taking the SAT completed their testing around 1:00.
“They are great for when we walk into the eleventh grade test, we will know exactly what’s going on,” freshman Faith Walters said.
