Testing for 10th and 11th Graders, April 11th

On Tuesday, April 11th, all 10th and 11th grade students enrolled in public schools in the State of Colorado are required to take standardized tests.  Tenth grade students take the PSAT and Eleventh grade students take the SAT.  Our school has spent a considerable amount of time helping students overcome test anxiety that sometimes is associated with these tests by practicing in a low-stakes environment.

School buses will run at the regular time on April 11th to bring 10th and 11th graders to EHS for testing.  The school buses will then make a second run to bring all other students to school in time for classes which begin at 11:15am.  This means that buses will run 3 1/2 hours after their regularly scheduled time.  All students will then be on a schedule with shorter periods for the remainder of that day.

Sophomores and Juniors are encouraged to bring a calculator, a snack (if they wish) and to dress in layers.  The gym can be cool for testing and some students find a hoodie to be a good solution.  Students should sleep well the night prior to the test and come to school well-fed.  It is also very important that students arrive on-time.

Freshmen students will test the following day during normal class times blocks 1 - 3 and 5 - 7.  4th block and 8th block will meet at the regular times.

We appreciate how seriously our students take these exams which have a big impact on college acceptance and scholarship opportunities in the near future.
