PSAT Testing - Wednesday, October 16th
This two hour test is offered once a year. Many juniors and some accelerated sophomores take this test as preparation for the SAT. (The SAT is taken typically in the spring of their junior year and is widely used as a major criterion for college admissions). The PSAT can also lead to academic recognition and scholarship funding for juniors who score extremely high through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. To reserve a seat for the PSAT, students must register by paying $16 in the MHS Business office. Registration can also be done online on the Mead School District online portal payment. Upon paying, students will receive a practice booklet and further instructions for the test day. All PSAT test takers will be excused from 1st-4th periods on the day of the test and will take 2nd lunch.
