Dear Parents/Guardians,


SUBJECT:  October 2015 PSAT/NMSQT® at Stamford High School


Stamford High School will offer the PSAT/NMSQT® on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 to 10th and 11th grade students. The purpose of the test is to give all students an opportunity to experience taking a college readiness test and to identify students who might benefit from advanced coursework.

The administration of the PSAT/NMSQT® will result in a modified schedule that affects all students, regardless of whether they will be taking the exam or not.

Unless otherwise notified, all 10th and 11th grade students will arrive to school at the regularly scheduled time and report to assigned rooms for test administration.  All room assignments will be posted throughout the building in the days leading up to the 14th.  It is extremely important that all students taking the PSAT/NMSQT® are in their assigned rooms by 7:25 a.m.

Note: There are a limited number of calculators available to students for the math section – all students should come prepared with their own calculator (laptops, tablets, cellphones/smartphones are not acceptable).

All 9th and 12th grade students will report to school on a delayed start.  A delayed bus run will pick students up three (3) hours after the normally scheduled pick up time.  Upon arrival, 9th and 12th grade students will report to the gymnasium, located on the 4th floor or the cafeteria, depending on where they enter the building. 

Once testing has concluded, all students will report to period 2 for an extended block class and their lunch wave.  Class will begin at 11:15 a.m.  All students will finish the day in period 3 and dismissal will occur at the regularly scheduled time.

If you have any questions regarding PSAT/NMSQT® administration, please contact Mr. Laskowski at 203-977-4706.

The Stamford High School partnership of administrators, faculty, and staff believes that all students can learn. We believe that we must provide a rigorous, relevant curriculum for all students that promotes critical and creative thinking and works to engage all students regardless of their varied abilities and backgrounds.  To do so, we must give students multiple opportunities to succeed in the high school experience as well as set high expectations for all students and hold them, and ourselves, accountable.  We must also foster and maintain a culture that focuses on the importance of academics and routinely celebrates academic achievement.  It is our responsibility to model life-long learning, civic engagement, and respect and tolerance for diversity and for each other.

The Stamford High School faculty has created the following 21st Century Learning Expectations and will work together to ensure that all students master these skills at a proficient level (or above) by the time they graduate in preparation for college and/or the workplace. Students will have the skills and knowledge necessary to:

 Academic Expectations:

1. Read and understand complex texts from all content areas, including visual texts, in order to extract information from them.

2. Write cohesively and cite evidence when synthesizing information from multiple texts.

3. Use critical thinking skills to analyze, interpret, and solve multi-step real-world problems.

4. Conduct research to build and present knowledge individually or in groups.

Social Expectation:

5. Develop an understanding of a healthy intellectual, physical, social, and emotional lifestyle.

Civic Expectation:

6. Develop an understanding of the meaning of citizenship.
