Tenth grade students who participated in the October administration of the PSAT  received  paper copies of their score reports this past week in their English classes.  During this time, college counselors demonstrated how students can access their scores online and showed them how they can use these scores to measure their current level of college readiness and begin planning for college.  College counselors also provided an overview of additional online college planning resources available to students through College Board and Naviance.   Please contact Mrs. Bunton at buntonn@wyomincityschools.org if you have questions or concerns about PSAT results.
