Results: The test results from the October 17th PSAT test were reviewed with the sophomores during their Biology classes on
Wednesday January 17th. The sophomores will be encouraged to take the PSAT/NMSQT the fall of their junior year and the state
will pay for them to take the SAT the spring of their junior year.
Results: Eleven HHS juniors volunteered to take the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test on October 17th.
All eleven scored well in the 50 percentile and above. Congratulations to HHS juniors Cindy Albor, Carson Brown, Alyssa Clagg,
Drew Deal, Nathan Farrell, Thane Granden, Alex Grant, Josey Hall, Sophie Nash, Lindy Phariss and Mauricia Villarreal. In September
of 2018 the NMSQT will announce the 2017-18 semi-finalists. What constitutes a range of scores in the top 50 percentile? 1080-1600.
HHS senior Veronica Flores was a NMSQT semi-finalist for the 2016-17 school year! Hopefully HHS will have more National Merit
Scholars from the class of 2019! For more information about the NMSQT, click the following link: National Merit Scholarship Corporation
SAT (College Board) and Khan Academy have partnered to
create one of the best test prep opportunities offered! All
HHS sophomores and juniors have a “personalized” test prep program through Khan Academy! Your students PSAT/NMSQT
scores were linked with Khan Academy’s SAT test prep program. What this does it eliminates the need for your student
to work on areas they are already strong in and helps your student focus on what they need to work on. If your student did
not take the PSAT, no problem. There is a math and English diagnostic test for them to take. This is a great opportunity for
HHS students to prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT. The average improvement in test scores for those students who spent time
preparing for the SAT through Khan Academy was 115 points! Please encourage your student to spend time each week preparing.
It is never too early to start! How do students access the test prep site? They type SATpractice.org in the address bar of
their phone, Chromebook or computer browser and log in through their Google account and they are ready to go!
