Oct 16, 2019 PSAT/SAT Test Day

Wednesday, Oct 16 is PSAT/SAT Test Day @ SKHS
Posted on 09/26/2019
TestAll students will be taking either the SAT or PSAT on October 16, 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. 

The SAT/PSAT identifies strengths and areas for improvement for students before they leave SKHS. Information gained from these test scores can also be very useful in guidance for career pathways.

Seniors will take the SAT, Sophomores and Juniors will take the PSAT/NMSQT, and Freshman will sit the PSAT 8/9 on the high school campus.
(*Note: Students will be notified of their testing room by October 15th.)

Running Start 11th graders may choose to take the PSAT/NMSQT, and Running Start 12th graders the SAT, at the Armory on October 16th.  Running Start students can sign up to take the test by contacting Ede Buisch, buisch@skschools.org, 360-874-5627.

On Tuesday – Get a good nights sleep and be well rested.

Remember to BE ON TIME on Wednesday Oct 16.

Wednesday is a late start day (it is neither an A or a B day schedule) If you can get dropped off or can car pool, please arrive by 7:45 a.m. If you ride the bus, don’t be late to the bus stop.

When you arrive at school GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR TESTING LOCATION and CHECK IN. Do not hang around outside or in the commons. 
Students testing at the Armory should go directly to the Armory and check in.

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.

Why?  Test centers are serious about security and quiet, so prohibited devices, which include cellphones, tablets, and MP3 players, must be turned off and given to the proctor. Better yet: Leave them at home.
