As educators (as well as the media) continue to discuss, debate, and challenge the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the ACT/SAT, it is important that you take the examinations seriously, while realizing that they are not the single most important factor that will get you admitted or denied to a college.
Glenbrook North High School Code (CEEB): 143-215
It is recommended that students begin taking these tests during the spring of their junior year. Students have plenty of opportunity to take the tests. ACT’s are offered in February, April, June, September, October, and December and SAT’s in January, March, April, May, June, October, November and December. Therefore, taking these tests in October or December of your junior year for practice is simply not necessary! As a statewide initiative, all juniors will be administered the SAT in April during the school day. This SAT can be used for college admissions.
Students eligible to participate in the school district's Free/Reduced Lunch program should see Ms. Stoller or Dr. Boyle for possible fee waivers for the ACT/SAT.
PLEASE NOTE: Glenbrook North High School does NOT record test scores on transcripts or applications. It is the student's responsibility to request the testing company to send their scores directly to the college(s).
