On Wednesday, Oct. 13, sophomores and juniors took the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT). The test consists of three main sections; a reading section, a writing section, and a math section. Sophomores and juniors received a packet in their English classes with test prep for the PSAT. Juniors will have the opportunity to gain scholarships and be eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program depending on how well they perform on the test. 

“To be honest I haven’t really thought about the PSAT that much,” Anannya Sathaye ‘24 said. “I feel like I haven’t studied enough, but I’m not too nervous since we’ve already been taking tests since the school year started.”

Freshmen participated in activities including Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training and study hall, while seniors were involved in taking the senior photo, a graduation meeting, college application counseling, and study hall. Seniors also had the option to participate in Texas Success Initiative (TSI) testing or Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) testing.
