Message from the Principal
Dear Students and Parents,
I hope you are enjoying a restful summer and looking forward to an exciting 2013-2014 school year. As you know, high school students throughout the nation take SAT and ACT examinations as part of the college application process. These assessments provide colleges with important information and can significantly impact admissions decisions. With this in mind, I ask that you please take a few moments to review the information below:
Taking Your SATs at HBHS
Hampton Bays High School is an approved College Board testing site for the SAT. However, seating is limited and scheduled on a first come, first serve basis at www.collegeboard.com
. We will be administering the October 5, 2013, January 25, 2014 and May 3, 2014 SATs at Hampton Bays High School. It is recommended that juniors register for these examinations now, before all seats are taken!
Taking Your PSATs at HBHS
All 10th and 11th grade students will take their PSATs on Wednesday, October 16. The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is a component of any good study plan, as the score reports we receive in December provide important information regarding testing strengths and weaknesses. However, for students to meet these examinations with success they must invest significant time with studying.
Hampton Bays High School provides every student with a license to a comprehensive on-line review program called Method Test Prep
. This online course can help students build their Math, Reading, Writing and SAT / ACT skills. Method Test Prep
contains video tutorials, a large pool of practice questions and answer explanation features. In addition, the program is highly interactive, tracking academic strengths and weaknesses.
In order to access this valuable resource, please visit:
Please contact the main office for your referral code and free access to Method Test Prep. The referral code will also be sent home in your welcome back to school packets.
Success on the SAT and ACT requires hard work and a detailed study plan. We recommend that students build Method Test Prep
review time into their weekly schedules beginning in 9th grade. We are committed to helping every student find success on these important assessments and remain confident that use of this resource will result in better scores.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s SAT / ACT review plan or need additional guidance regarding college placement assessments, please contact me directly at email@example.com
or call the main office at (631) 723-2110.
