GHS is aware of the importance of the ACT so we have put together a packet to help students and parents understand the ACT scores and how students can do their best on these tests.
Juniors were given packets that include the following:
Smart Goal for the ACT: includes your student's pre-ACT score, practice ACT score, and the target score we think they can achieve next spring when they take the ACT with writing.
ACT Essential Facts: information on test costs, test content, how to calculate your composite score, etc.
ACT Test Dates for the 2018-2019 academic year (includes registration deadlines)
ACT Quick Tips includes strategies for success
ACT Prep Resources
If your child did not do well on the pre-ACT or practice ACT, they have a few months to prepare for the April 24, 2019 test which will be given at GHS (at nocost!). There are many good websites that provide free help. Students who spend time each week reviewing these resources will feel prepared when they test next spring.
There is one more page in the packet, Bridge to Success, which outlines the incentives offered for students to improve their scores. We are working hard at GHS to ensure your students are prepared, and we appreciate the time and effort you and they spend working at home!
