Tuesday, April 24th: PSAT, SAT, and Senior Beach Day
On Tuesday, April 24th, DVS will be administering the PSAT 9 to all 9th graders and the PSAT 10 to all 10th graders. These tests are age-appropriate and shorter versions of the SAT. The SAT is a college entrance exam that students will be expected to take if they plan to enroll in a 4-year college after graduation. Results from the PSAT 9 and PSAT 10 can help families prepare for the SAT exam in the 11th grade. All 9th and 10th grade students are expected to take the exams, and the cost of these exams is covered by DVS.
For the first time ever, DVS is offering 11th graders the chance to take the SAT here at school. The benefit to this is that students get to take the exam in their own classrooms with their own teachers as a part of the regular school day. The cost for this exam is $60 per student, and the only thing students need to do to register to take the test is pay the $60 to the front office between now and testing day. If a student is eligible for free or reduced lunch, the school will use a fee waiver to cover the cost of the testing.
While the 9th, 10th, and 11th graders are testing, the 12th graders will be enjoying the annual DVS tradition of Senior Beach Day. The buses for this event will leave the school at 9am, and DVS pays for the transportation cost of this special celebratory field trip.
