Class of 2021 Students and Parents,

 

Here are a few items of interest for your review from your DBHS Class of 2021 Grade Level Coordinators:

 

SAT and ACT Test Preparation/Test Practice Opportunity-FREE

Just before the holiday break, we emailed you information on a Test Preparation program offered to our sophomores free of charge-No strings attached.  The free opportunity expires on March 1, 2019.  It is a self-paced program so students can spend as little or as much time exploring the tests as desired.  It is for both the SAT and the ACT.

Below is the email we sent out in December with the links to the test-preparation site:
