Posted 11/21/2019 12:56PM

SEMESTER ONE EXAMS

Thursday, December 12 - Wednesday, December 18

View the Semester One Exam Schedule HERE.


Students are only required to be on campus when they have exams. All students are REQUIRED to sign in and sign out in the Main Office so we know who is and is not on campus.

Morning exams start at 9:00 a.m. This start time provides a supportive testing schedule for those students who need a little extra time in the morning to rest, wake up, commute, or study. Afternoon exams start at 1:00 pm. A one-hour lunch break occurs between exams. Students should bring a lunch or snacks.

All exams are allotted three hours, though exams are designed to take an average of 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. Students should plan to sit an exam for at least two hours before being excused. When not testing, students should keep to designated study areas and remain quiet and respectful of those students who are testing.

Have a testing conflict? Check in with your teacher/s to arrange an alternate testing time.

Do you require testing accommodations? Be sure to speak with your teachers and Mrs. Moneypenny about your approved accommodations.  Please look for an email from Mrs. Moneypenny with more details.
