  Seniors Offer Tips for Acing State Tests

 
  In April 2013, juniors at Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy took the ACT and the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE).

The same group of students, now seniors preparing to graduate in May, had some advice for this year’s class of juniors as they prepare to take the ACT/PSAE on April 23 and 24.

Ladarius Sapho, a Proviso East senior, increased his ACT score five points from the practice ACT that he took earlier in the year. While he said that it is important to eat a healthy breakfast on both days to make sure that you are not hungry during the tests, he also recommended that it is important just to have confidence in yourself on each question. He said that the juniors should be mindful of the time allotted for each portion of the tests and approach the questions accordingly.

  47 Schools Represented at First PMSA College Fair

 
 

More than 100 students and their families learned more about what different colleges can offer them at the First Annual Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy College Fair on April 3 at PMSA.

“The college fair was a great success,” said Ms. Amy Paulus, a PMSA guidance counselor. “We received a lot of positive feedback from our students and the college representatives that were here.  We are looking forward to expanding the college fair next year and opening it up to more students and families in the community.”
