IMPORTANT: SHS Testing Update

Please read for important information for October 13 - grades 9-12

Note: Any student not testing on 10/13 should stay at home that day. Classes will not be in session, all teachers will be proctoring exams.

ALL 11th grade students will take the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday. The Opt-in is only for grades 9, 10, and 12.

The Michigan Department of Education is requiring all Michigan high schools to offer the PSAT 9, PSAT/NMSQT for grades 10-11, and the SAT without essay for grade 12 in October of 2021. This testing is being offered as a makeup opportunity for any students who did not take the test in April of 2021 due to virtual learning, COVID, etc, however, all students had the opportunity to opt-in via a Google Form before September 9 if desired. 

  • ALL 11th grade students will test on Wednesday. 
  • These tests are not required for grades 9, 10, or 12.
  • All students in grades 9, 10, and 11 will test in April 2022 as scheduled. 


The timeline was condensed as the state did not provide details on this testing opportunity until late August. Schools were required to order exam materials by September 15, 2021. We are being charged for each test booklet that is ordered, whether or not the test is taken. This is the reason for the opt-in.


Given that tests have been ordered based on the opt-in survey, we can not guarantee that we will be able to accommodate any additional students for testing.
