Hampden Charter School of Science will be administering the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) to all eleventh grade students on Wednesday, October 14th. This exam is open to ninth and tenth grade students who are interested in.
This exam is very important for several reasons.
- It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the redesigned SAT. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.
- Your child automatically enters the competition for scholarships from NMSC.
- You will be able to receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.
- PSAT/NMSQT is prepared by SAT test makers. It provides firsthand practice for the redesigned SAT Test and gives students a comprehensive analysis of their answers so they can be better prepared to take the new SAT.
- The PSAT/NMSQT is divided into three parts: critical reading: 60 mins, 47 questions; writing and language: 35 mins, 44 questions; and math; 70 mins, 47 questions. Total: 165 mins and 138 questions. The test is reflective of the redesigned SAT that your child will take in their junior and senior years.
Fee: PSAT/NMSQT is given by College Board and the fee for the 2015 PSAT/NMSQT is $14. Please return your check payable to: Hampden Charter School of Science or cash to HCSS main office by September 25, 2014.
Note: All juniors will be taking PSAT/NMSQT for free of charge.
Dismissal time: Dismissal time will remain the same on the test date.
Test Materials: We strongly recommend that a calculator needs to be brought to school for this test along with two #2 pencils. Do not forget your eraser and sharpener.

COLLEGE GUIDANCE OFFICE
We have just started 2015/2016 school year at HCSS. We are very proud that HCSS has become one of the most successful schools in Massachusetts. We are level 1 school in MA and we’ve got 100% of four-year college acceptance with our first and second, and third graduating classes. That means every single graduated student at HCSS got accepted to four-year colleges.
In order for us to maintain our success, your cooperation is extremely important. Today, one of the major problems in education is lack of parent-teacher communication. Researches show that students are a lot more successful when their parents build a strong relationship with their parents. For this reason, I am going to contact with you to make a home visit to your house and invite you to my office throughout the school year.
