Understanding your PSAT Score

PSAT Scores were released via the College Board on Monday, December 12.  It will be the responsibility of each student to access their free on-line College Board account to view scores and the score report.  PSAT scores have also been uploaded to Naviance. 

Today, during Period 2, students were shown an overview of how to interpret the PSAT scores, utilize The College Board site and the many resources available too them. Each student also received their test book back so students may review questions.   

Both the Math and Language Arts teachers will be taking time over the next week to review the PSAT data and help students answer any questions they might have. 

If a student has any issues accessing The College Board site they can see their guidance counselor.  

Below are some resources/videos from The College Board Site:

2016 – 2017


RYAN GRIFFIN - Ryan, a junior, is a superb student in Honors Physics.  He earned a 97 for the first marking period and has maintained a test average of 99 for the year-to-date.  Ryan is fully engaged in the class, is quick to answer questions and often has advanced insight that is unusual in a high school Science student.  Ryan has demonstrated his excellent science skills both in problem solving and in the laboratory.  It is a pleasure to have Ryan Griffin as a student.


NICHOLAS GILLEN - Nick is a senior in CAD II, but has been exceptional in class progressing to a much higher level and ability.  Not only has Nick been able to apply his skills in class, but he has also designed prototypes in Engineering and Design class.  He has also been a huge part of the success for the STEM Team.  Nick loves a challenge and is always looking to forward his knowledge in design. CAD has been a tremendous tool for him.  Nick plans on modeling a rotary engine in class for a final project.  His biggest asset is his independent thinking skills.


SLOANE IRWIN Sloane is a sophomore on the Cross Country Team this fall.  She was the top finisher for the team in the NJSIAA State Sectional meet in November and has been consistently the team's top performer all fall.  Sloane was a big part of the team scoring with five runners this fall for the first time in a number of years.  She is one of the hardest workers on the team and continues to improve every day.  Sloane is also getting it done in the classroom, receiving all A's and B's on her report card for the first marking period.  As a sophomore, the Cross Country Team cannot wait to have her back for two more years.

JOHN CHIURAZZI Johnny is a senior Captain on the Cheerleading Team this fall.  He led the team in three competitions in the month of November, including a 2nd place finish at the West Milford Championships.  Johnny has been a true leader this fall with the squad.  He puts in the extra time to make sure that the entire team is on task and putting their best foot forward and he is loved by his teammates and coaches.  Johnny is also doing well in the classroom, carrying all A's and B's in his classes.  As an outgoing senior Captain, Johnny will be impossible to replace next year.
