    Ninth-Graders: A mock PSAT will be administered to all ninth graders at no cost using an outside vendor.  Since most freshmen will be experiencing the PSAT test-taking format for the first time, this is a great opportunity for our students to practice and prepare for the official PSAT which will be administered in their junior year.  Therefore, we advise that parents encourage their ninth-grader, and remind them of the importance of just participating in the test-taking process.  Students and parents will have the opportunity to access a comprehensive and informative analysis of the test performance on the mock PSAT.

     

    Tenth-Graders: The formal PSAT test will be administered to all students in grade 10, and at no cost. Montgomery County Public Schools pays for the administration of PSAT for tenth-graders.  It is mandatory for all tenth grade students to take the PSAT on the October 15 test date. Each student will receive a PSAT/NBSQT Student Bulletin from their English teacher.  Please review this bulletin with your son/daughter prior to the test date.  PSAT test results will be sent to us in January, at which time guidance counselors will review results with students. 

     

    Eleventh-Graders: The official PSAT test will be administered to all students in grade 11, at a cost of $14.   Eleventh graders MUST pre-register for the PSAT by no later than Thursday, October 9Registration forms are available in the main office and counseling office. Counselors will also start meeting with Juniors next week to discuss the PSAT and distribute PSAT registration forms. Eleventh graders who take the PSAT may qualify for National Merit Scholarship Programs, therefore we encourage all eleventh grade students take the PSAT on the October 15 test date. Each student will receive a PSAT/NBSQT Student Bulletin from their English teacher.  Please review this bulletin with your son/daughter prior to the test date.  PSAT test results will be sent to us in January, at which time guidance counselors will review results with students.
