Test Preparation


We encourage every student to spend adequate time preparing to take the ACT or SAT. These are not tests in which a student can simply sit down and take without understanding the testing format and content. SHHS provides the following information to assist in preparing for the tests. 

METHOD TEST PREP course-SHHS students are highly encouraged to utilize the Method Test Prep course. It is an interactive, web-based program of instruction that allows students to practice and prepare for the ACT exam. The site is available to all SHHS students at no cost. Students can access the site at any time and from any location that has internet connectivity.
