PSAT  - WHS will offer the PSAT for 10th and 11th graders on October 19th.  Students in 8th and 9th grade will test on October 20th.  For more information, see your school counselor.

The PSAT is now offered as early as the 8th grade!  The PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 are great ways to preview and practice for the SAT. They test the same skills and knowledge as the SAT — in a way that makes sense for your grade level.

When you get your test results, connect your College Board and Khan Academy® accounts to get free personalized SAT study recommendations.
