East will be hosting the SAT on Tuesday, October 27th for 12th-grade students and the PSAT on thursday, October 29th for 11th grade students. You must already be registered in order to sit for the exam. No instruction will be given on these days in order to provide this opportunity to our students. These are optional tests. If your student has signed up using recent surveys, please wait for further information regarding your test time and room to report for test day. You can contact your counselor to check if you have signed up.
The testing schedule will be similar to our current school schedule where students A-L will complete a morning test session and students M-Z will complete an afternoon test session. This schedule supports our cohort and current safety measures for students and proctors.
