School-Wide Test Day SAT, ASVAB or PSAT
Wednesday, October 13 students will be taking either the SAT, ASVAB or PSAT, free of charge, here at South Kitsap High School. We believe this is a valuable experience for all students no matter what their post-secondary intentions might be.
For those who might believe this is not a benefit for their plans, keep in mind that the SAT/PSAT identifies strengths and areas for improvement for students before they leave SKHS. The information gained from these test scores can also be very useful in guidance for career pathways. For students who are considering or are already moving towards college or university plans, the SAT/PSAT is a key component.
All Freshmen will take Science (NGSS) and English (SBAC) exams.
All students on campus will be testing. Students should arrive to school by 7:45 a.m. if possible, tomorrow is a late start Wednesday and bus riders do not need to make alternate arrangements.
Students have been given their room assignments already and should report directly to their test location in the morning as soon as they arrive on campus.

Turn Off All Electronic Devices
You’ll need to turn off all electronic devices during the test and even during breaks. Electronic devices will be collected and kept in a secure place. This includes cellphones. Be sure to turn off your watch alarm, if you have one.
Test centers are serious about security and quiet, so prohibited devices, which include cellphones, tablets, smart watches and MP3 players, must be turned off and given to the proctor. Better yet: Leave them at home. Important: REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT!
