        B = four (4) points
        Highest Honors: 35 points
        High Honors: 33-34 points
        Honors: 31-32 points
The Honor Roll considers all grades equitably regardless of course level.

Grade 9 MCAS STE (Biology) - Tuesday, June 4, 2019, and Wednesday, June 5, 2019

posted May 30, 2019, 11:58 AM by Richard Barden

In June, Grade 9 students will be administered the paper-based MCAS Biology Test. This paper-based science test will count along with your child’s MCAS English Language Arts and Mathematics scores to determine eligibility for the Competency Determination graduation requirement and for the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship and the Stanley Z. Koplik Award. Next year, the MCAS Biology Test will be a next-generation, computer-based test similar to the Grade 10 ELA and Mathematics tests.

On Thursday, May 30, Grade 9 students attended an assembly to receive information about testing procedures and preparation for the upcoming MCAS Biology Test. Students were reminded to get eight hours of sleep each night and to have a healthy breakfast each morning. On testing days, students must arrive to school before 7:05 a.m. and report to the assigned testing room immediately. Also, the use of cell phones during testing for any purpose is prohibited. Scores will be invalidated if cell phones are used. All families are encouraged to take a few moments to discuss these topics with students. Most importantly, we wish Grade 9 students the best throughout testing as they show what they know.
