Special PSAT Opportunity for Sophomores!

Desert Sands is excited to announce a partnership with CollegeBoard to provide all sophomore students with access to the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT.)  In Spring 2016, all sophomores will participate in the PSAT.  This effort is intended to increase students’ awareness and involvement in the college-going process and allow them the opportunity to practice a standardized exam used for college admittance.  In addition, test results can provide valuable feedback identifying academic weaknesses and can be used to determine advanced placement (AP) course readiness.  Sophomores may re-take the exam (PSAT/NMAQT) in the fall of their junior year if they want to be considered for the National Merit Scholarship Program; the cost of this exam is not supported by DSUSD.
