Over the next few weeks, students will have the ability to investigate the higher level academic offerings that will be available next year. Our hope is that earlier AP/IB/Honors meetings will not only be a proactive approach to transparency with regards to course details, but also improve turnout and enrollment through targeted marketing.

Open this schedule for Seminar Meetings occurring from January 12 through February 2.

This spring, on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, our 9th, 10th and 11th graders will be taking the state required PSAT 9, PSAT 10, and SAT 11 at Dakota Ridge High School. This will be the first year our 9th graders take the PSAT 9, which is a part of the SAT Suite of Assessments.

Eleventh grade students taking the SAT will also have the option to take the SAT with essay at no additional cost. Students choosing to take the SAT with optional essay will do so on the same day at Dakota Ridge. Adding the optional SAT essay exam is a student choice. Students who want to take the SAT essay will need to add it to their school day registration using their College Board online account from Tuesday, January 16 – Wednesday, February 14, 2018. Details about this registration process for the SAT with essay are included in the SAT family letter linked below.

All eleventh graders have created College Board online accounts through their Seminar classes. In addition, those 11th graders who have already expressed a desire to take the essay portion of the SAT, will have a chance to register during Seminar. As soon as students are registered online with College Board, they can access SAT practice tests and receive daily test questions for preparation.

9th and 10th graders have also been able to create College Board accounts this past fall. This will allow students to be linked to PSAT 9 and 10 practice tests and daily questions for their test preparation.

Please take a few minutes to open and review the flyer linked below. Should you have questions, please contact Kim Keller, School Assessment Coordinator.
