JHS to offer SAT on campus March 3

Jupiter High juniors are set to take the SAT on March 3. Juniors are required to arrive at school and go into their testing locations by 7:30 a.m., and dismissal should be around 12:30 p.m. 

Testing coordinator Dr. Kelly Easterling is in charge of the SAT distribution every year and wants to make sure students feel safe taking it. 

“This year we will be testing in very small groups with all desks 6 feet apart,” Easterling said.

Juniors should check their emails on March 1. to find out their testing locations. 

“There are many accommodations still pending, so I release the seating locations as close to the date as possible for accuracy,” Easterling said. 

The school day SAT is free to all juniors and is a paper-based test. It will not include the essay unless you retake it and pay extra for it.  

“You can take the SAT in the community anytime you like but it will cost $52 or $68 with the essay included but right now there are no scheduled retakes,” Easterling said. 

It’s important for students to have the correct materials to bring for the day of the test, such as an approved calculator and a snack.  

“Make sure to have number two pencils that are not mechanical, an approved calculator, your ID and a mask. I recommend students to bring a sweater, snacks and water,” Easterling said. 

If you are planning to leave after the SAT, but have another class, you may submit a parent note to student services no later than March 1. 

“We will deliver passes to your testing room during the SAT. All students, including virtual, need to submit a parent note to leave campus,” Easterling said.
