For the 2019/2020 school year the Portland Public Schools has changed its assessment plan for 11th graders. This year all 11th graders will take the SAT instead of the ACT. Both are post secondary admissions exams accepted by most colleges and universities. The PSAT that 10th graders take directly correlates to the SAT.
On March 4th all 11th graders will take the SAT. Students in other grade levels are not permitted to register for the March 4th administration. It will be an early release day for all students - the programming and schedule for other grade levels is pending.
Portland Public School administers the PSAT/NMSQT to all 10th graders on a set day in Mid-October. The PSAT/NMSQT is also available for 11th graders to retake if they wish for a price and if space is available. 11th graders must register with the buildings Test Coordinator in order to test, payment (on school pay) must be received before registration can be completed.
