The PSAT will be administered at DASH on Wednesday, October 28. All 10th grade students will participate. Students in grades 9 and 11 are strongly encouraged to participate by purchasing their own exam. The cost of the exam is $15. Grade 11 students who qualify for free or reduced lunch are eligible for fee waivers and do not need to pay for the exam.
Grade 9 students will benefit by receiving practice for the SAT and by receiving scores DASH can use to help determine suitability for joining AP classes in future years. Grade 11 students will benefit by receiving practice for the SAT and by potentially qualifying for National Merit Scholarships (DASH has a national semifinalist senior this year – Marco Pagani).
