  • PSAT 8/9 Testing at The Weiss School for Middle School Students

    Mrs. Susan Evans
    Thursday, January 28th
    9:00 am - 12:00 pm
     
    The PSAT 8/9 helps students determine what they need to work on most so that they’re ready for college when they graduate from high school. The same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10 are presented in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.
