PSAT Test Results

On Thursday, 1/8/15, Logan counselors met with all sophomores who took the PSAT earlier in the school year.  The PSAT is a practice test for the SAT, a college preparatory exam required by many universities.  Furthermore, the PSAT is a great indicator of success in AP classes.  The students were also given access to My College Quickstart - an individualized online account where students can review their PSAT results, prepare for the SAT with personalized study guides, and see colleges & careers that match their interests.  Logan counselors encourage parents to further discuss these results with their sophomore .  To learn more about the PSAT, please visit our school website (jameslogan.org/psat) - view the short video and the slideshow shown to students today.  A sample score report is also available.
