INFORMATION FROM OUR TEST PREP COORDINATOR
Dear Sophomore Families:

Hello!  My name is Cheryl Hermach and I am the Test Prep Coordinator at Lafayette High School.  I wanted to take the time to share some information about test preparation for your sophomore student.

First, I wanted to make  you aware that the PSAT test will be offered this fall for sophomores to take.  This test is the beginning of the National Merit Award process for students in their junior year of high school.  While taking the PSAT as a sophomore doesn't "count" towards National Merit status, taking the PSAT as a sophomore has several advantages:  1) students get a feel for a timed, standardized test.  2) all students get score reports to see their strengths and weaknesses and receive testing booklets to review missed questions.  3) since the scores do not "count" for college admissions or even National Merit status, there is no risk in taking the test.  4) Lafayette High School will identify top scorers and discuss test preparatory options with these students and families in order to score higher on the PSAT in the student's junior year to earn National Merit status.  The test is offered at Lafayette High School on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, and students will miss morning classes.  Your student is responsible for any work he/she misses.   

 

Additionally, many families are considering when to have their sophomore student take the ACT or SAT test.  My strong recommendation is to be sure your student has completed the Algebra II math class before taking the test too many times, for the Math Section of both tests cover Algebra II curriculum.  Thus, in the year  your student is taking Algebra II, I would suggest preparing for the ACT or SAT test in November or January and taking these standardized tests in April or June.  Lafayette High School has ACT preparatory classes for the October, December, February, April and June National Test Dates.  Currently, the December, April and June tests allow students to pay extra to receive the test book and answers to review and prepare for the next test.  Keep this in mind as you make your testing plans.  The classes at LHS run for 5 weeks, and students are expected to attend  Tuesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. and Wednesday and Thursday mornings during zero hour in order to receive one hour of instruction per week in each of the four sections  included on the ACT test.  Additionally, we have a list of prep options on our test prep website at https://goo.gl/YLG1Md .  The Rockwood School District and Lafayette High School do not endorse any of these options over others.

 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions by e-mailing me at hermachcheryl@rsdmo.org or calling Lafayette High School at 636-733-4100 .

​Sincerely,


Cheryl Hermach

Test Prep Coordinator
