An Important Message from your Principal [PDF]

Dear Springbrook Students, Parents and Guardians,

I am writing to inform you that I will be taking an extended leave from my position as principal of Springbrook High School. This has become necessary to allow me to care for my wife, who is recovering from injuries sustained in a serious bicycling accident. My leave begins immediately and is approved to January 15, 2016. It is my hope that the timeline of my wife's recovery will allow me to return sooner. I have been working with the MCPS Office of School Support and Improvement (OSSI) and the school administrative team to ensure that everything goes smoothly at Springbrook while I am away.

Springbrook has an outstanding administrative team and I know the school is in good hands during my absence. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact an administrator at the school or Mr. Kevin Lowndes, director of school support and improvement, at 301 -279-3316 or by email at

Thank you for your understanding. I look forward to rejoining the Springbrook community soon.

PSAT Testing Letter to Parents

Dear Parents/Guardians:


The PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be administered to all 10th and 11th grade students, free of charge, at Springbrook High School on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. On this day, all 10th and 11th grade students must attend their first period class which runs from 7:45 to 8:20 a.m. The testing period will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will last until 11:50 a.m. Students should bring two sharpened #2 pencils and an eraser.  Although no questions require the use of a calculator, students are strongly encouraged to bring an approved calculator. 9th grade students who are interested in taking the test can register between October 5th and October 9th by paying a $14 fee to the school bank.  9th grade students can obtain a PSAT registration form from the main office. The registration form is also attached to this e-mail. 9th grade students who do not register for the test will not have to report to school until 11:50 a.m. Students who rely on MCPS transportation to and from school and are not taking the PSAT, can ride their bus at the regular time. Once the PSAT begins, they will be directed to the cafeteria for a study hall session that will be monitored by Springbrook staff.   Twelfth grade students are not eligible to take the test and will not have to report to school until 11:50 a.m. 12th grade students who report to school before 11:50 a.m. will be directed to a study hall session in the cafeteria.  Seniors who attend Thomas Edison High School will report to school at the regular time and attend classes there. Sophomores and Juniors who attend Thomas Edison High School will take the PSAT instead.


The PSAT is administered once each year and is an important first step in making college plans. The structure of the test is similar to that of the SAT I.  The test measures critical reading, math problem-solving, and writing skills. Scores and interpretive booklets will be distributed at school by mid-January. It is important to note that a makeup day will not be offered at Springbrook High School for the PSAT, therefore on-time student attendance is VERY important on the day of the test.


Why does MCPS and Springbrook High School pay for 10th and 11th grade students to take the PSAT?


In an effort to improve students’ preparation for college level studies, Montgomery County Public Schools will pay the test administration fee for all 10th grade students. Springbrook High School will cover the cost of the test for all 11thgrade students.  The PSAT provides:


Feedback on academic performance & suggestions on how to improve

Preparation for the SAT

Information from colleges and universities through the Student Search


A free personalized online college planning kit based on test results

A true measure of a student’s college readiness

A true measure (predictor) of how a student will perform in future AP or IB




Opportunities for 11th grade students to earn scholarships and academic

           recognition—The PSAT is also the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying

          Test (NMSQT).


For more information, including on-line practice questions, we encourage you to visit the College Board’s website at where you can find a link to the Official Student Guide to the PSAT that will help your child prepare for the test.


If you have any questions about the upcoming PSAT administration, we encourage you to contact your child’s counselor at 301-989-5710.

Students take four courses each day. One course, High School 101, offers a chance to get student questions answered, learn their way around the building, and develop a relationship with a 9th grade teacher.
