We work very hard to teach your child well. They do not have to focus on preparing for this test. No particular "prep" at home or school is necessary. We do, however, encourage your child to relax, eat a good breakfast, and arrive to school on time during their ITBS testing week.

They offer programs and services to help young people succeed in school, develop leadership skills, and maintain healthy lifestyles.
