Message from the Principal

July 23, 2015

Dear Parents and Members of the Class of 2017,

As you may know, the College Board will be introducing the new SAT in March of 2016.  Given the uncertainty of this redesigned college placement examination, we are recommending that students prepare for and take the current exam before it is eliminated.  As such, we are recommending that the Class of 2017 prepare for and take the October 2015 and January 2016 examinations, offered at Hampton Bays High School.  

The cost of private tutors and some of the larger commercial programs is prohibitive for many.  In order to better help our students prepare for the SAT we would like to offer a mid-summer / early fall review course with Method Test Prep according to the following schedule:

Summer Dates (Wednesdays 9:00-12:00)
8/5, 8/12, 8/19 & 8/26 

Fall Dates (Saturdays 9:00-12:00)
9/5, 9/12, 9/19 & 9/26   

All classes will be held in the high school in room 9.  In order for this review program to be effective it is essential that we maintain a low student to teacher ratio.  As such, Method Test Prep has capped enrollment at 25 students.

The cost per student will be $300 for a total of 24 hours of instruction.  Payment will be made directly to Method Test Prep via online portal at http://www.methodtestprep.com/hampton-bays.  We realize the expense associated with SAT review and believe this program is a viable option at a reasonable rate.  Given the limited availability of seats, students will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.  If you have any questions, please contact me directly at crichardt@hbschools.us or call the main office at (631) 723-2110.

As a reminder, Hampton Bays High School provides all students a license for the online Method Test Prep course as well as access to My College Quick Start through the College Board.  If you would like to create an account for Method Test Prep, please visit:  https://app.methodtestprep.com/HamptonBaysHighSchool/signup

Using referral code: tkn.14880471 students will be able to establish their personal accounts to access review materials, on-line lessons and sample SATs and ACTs.

Please remember to visit www.collegeboard.org to register your child for the SATs.  The window for registration typically opens in mid-June.  Seating at Hampton Bays High School for October 2015 and January 2016 exams are limited, so please register as soon as possible.
