September 11, 2017
It is my pleasure to outline our efforts to ensure your student graduates from Wamogo with all the knowledge and skills necessary for college and career readiness. Our goal is to make sure that each graduate is not only prepared academically, but also has developed the maturity to navigate through the world of post-secondary choices (s)he will face.
Our preparation begins in middle school when students develop their success plans. Through this process, students begin with career explorations, resume writing, college research, and goal setting. They conclude their middle school experience by developing a four year high school plan.
The preparation continues at the high school level with our emphasis on the SAT. Students in grade 9 and 10 will take the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) in both the fall and the spring. Although the date of administration varies from year to year, the fall date is October 11, 2017. Teachers and students will access their results to identify whether they are on track to meet the targeted benchmark in both math and evidence-based reading and writing. There will also be an analysis of the results that will help guide student growth from fall to spring as well as from year to year. Our teachers will be implementing SAT aligned items into their daily instruction and assessments to better prepare our students. This will facilitate the growth required for each student to optimize their achievement which will translate into a more successful college admissions process. There will be no cost to students to take the PSAT at Wamogo. Students in grades 9 and 10 will also have access to college fairs, career explorations as well as other various experiences that will enable them to explore post-secondary options.
Students in grade 11 will continue this plan and take the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) in the fall. There is no cost to students and the fall date is October 11, 2017. Teachers and students will utilize the results to better prepare them for the SAT in the spring which will be taken at Wamogo at no cost. Students in grade 11 will also attend local and national college fairs as well as have access to college planning and financial aid informational sessions.
Our grade 12 students will develop their college essay, resume and cover letter as well as complete the college common application. They will engage in mock interviews so that they will be prepared for the college admission process as well as future job interviews.
We are very proud of our efforts to ensure our students are career and college ready, however we are always seeking to improve. If you have any suggestions about how we can better prepare your student for their post-secondary goals, please feel free to contact one of our school counselors with your feedback.
