The point of the PSAT 8/9 is to provide insight into the subject areas where you need to make the most score improvements before you take the PSAT and ultimately the SAT. The PSAT 8/9 has no stakes - it’s just a way to see how you’re doing without any consequences. This is a WONDERFUL opportunity. Your child will receive their personal "Score Report" along with the book they used to take their test. They will also receive an Access Code to view their full report and results on-line and suggestions for improvement. Please do not miss the opportunity to take the PSAT.
There is no need to contact Henderson at this time. You will be asked to send a letter prior to October 11th if you do not want your child to participate.
