High School Placement Test & Prep Class Opportunities

The Scholastic Testing Service (STS) – High School Placement Test (HSPT) measures a student’s ability in cognitive and basic skill areas and can be administered in a relatively limited amount of time. Since the entire battery is standardized the end results are directly comparable for all test areas and can be related to the level of the students at the time of entering high school.
