Hawthorne High School administered the PSATs for all Sophomores and Juniors on Wednesday, October 19, 2016.

In total, approximately 334 students participated in this test. The PSAT stands for Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. This is the second time the class of 2018 has taken this test, and the first time for the class of 2019. In order for everyone to participate, funds were allocated by the school. In order to prepare for this test, students were given a student practice guide booklet with practice questions that were provided by their English teachers.

Clarion Reporters Sarah Ahmad and Jaycob Castillo interviewed Mr. Michael Galluccio, one of the Hawthorne High School guidance counselors, with some PSAT questions.


Clarion Reporters: What is your opinion on the PSATs?

Mr. Galluccio: I think this test is excellent for both Juniors and Sophomores. It prepares the students for the SATs, and helps them view their strengths and weaknesses. It is an extra advantage for Sophomores because they are able to take it more than once before taking the SATs.


Clarion Reporters: When can students view their scores?

Mr. Galluccio: Students can view their scores tentatively on December 12 where they will individually discuss their scores as well as overlook their strengths and weaknesses. Students will also be able to view their scores online.


Congratulations to all of the students who participated in the 2016 PSATs, and good luck to the HHS Class of 2018 on their SATs! Go Bears!
