PSAT/ NMSQT scores will be available Dec 6th or 7th.  Parents, you can ask your student to show you their scores in the College Board portal. The students must set up an account to access the scores. Most sophomores, juniors and seniors have already set up these accounts. Freshmen, you will need to set up an account. If you provided an email address when taking the test, you will receive an email to create an account.  
Parents and students- you can see a demo student to show you the aspects of the score reports using this link: sat.org/scoresdemo

"Grief never ends, but it changes.  It's a passage, not a place to stay. 
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. Grief is the price of LOVE."
