Earlier this month, East Mountain High School mailed home ACT Aspire scores to freshmen and sophomore students. These college-preparatory tests were given to students in September 2014. The ACT Aspire replaces the ACT Explore and PLAN, which were previously used for preparing students to take the official ACT during their junior and senior years. To help parents and students understand the new ACT Aspire test and scoring system, the ACT has created a publication called "Understanding Your ACT Aspire Results." You can download that document by clicking on this headline.

On Thursday 1/22, East Mountain High School will participate in “A Walk in the PARCC.” This is a PED mandatory "dress rehearsal" for the upcoming PARCC test. All schools are required to participate. Students in grades 9-11 will log in to the testing site and try some of the PARCC problems. The purpose of the dress rehearsal is to give students an opportunity to become familiar with the online testing format of the new PARCC exam, as well and giving schools the opportunity to identify technical or any other obstacles.
