-Pre-IB students taking AP US History will still have the chance to take the AP test for college credit. Due to the coronavirus, the format has changed. Mrs. Heard (AP Coordinator) will email you the necessary information so that you can still take advantage of this opportunity sometime soon if she has not already.


-Most of you took the PSAT 8/9 on October 1st. It is strongly advised that you visit https://www.khanacademy.org/ and link your PSAT 8/9 scores from the College Board website so that you can get personalized feedback and practice. Studies show that the more time you spend on Khan Academy practicing, the higher your actual ACT and SAT scores will be as you get older.
