Johnston-Edgefield-Trenton Middle School (J-E-T) students are making preparations to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT)  on October 10, 2018. On Wednesday, over 25 eighth and seventh grade students gathered in, Ms. Shannon Densmore’s 8th Grade math classroom. “This year, we have three seventh grade students and a slew of eighth grade students who have signed up to take the test.

We are capable of testing 100 students and we have about 70 students signed up,” Densmore says.

The PSAT is a two hour long assessment given once a year normally taken by 11th graders in high school. J-E-T allows eighth grade students and some seventh graders, with approval from administrators, to take the assessment during their middle school years. Students completing the PSAT in high school use it in preparation for the Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT). “Our students are excited, which makes me excited.  They have been showing up for assistance after school and asking for extra help during class and I am ready for them tackle that test,” Densmore says.
