2019 PSAT/NMSQT Administration for all 8th graders. Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019

ATTENTION:  In order to provide all students with the opportunity to experience above grade level testing and to help in preparing students to be college and career ready.  8th-grade students will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT on October 16, 2019.  Your student's PSAT/NMSQT test scores can also be considered for possible eligibility in the SC Junior Scholars identification and Development Program.  Because PSAT/NMQST does not offer make-up testing, it is important for your student to be on time and present on the testing day.  

8th Grade students ar SMS will have the opportunity to take the PSAT free of charge.  This opportunity will allow for students and their parents to see the areas in which they are on track for continuing education and in which areas they need to focus.  It also provides a chance for students to begin receiving scholarship information.  

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR 8TH GRADER ARRIVES TO SCHOOL ON TIME!

Note:  If you do not wish for your student to participate in PSAT/NMSQT testing, you must provide a written statement to your student's guidance counselor/PSAT testing coordinator prior to October 11, 2019.
