The TSI (Texas Success Initiative) is the state test that students need to pass in order to be accepted to a college. Our college partner, Northeast Texas Community College, will be here this semester to give the exams for any student who wants to take dual credit courses. Before you take this test, you will have to do the required TSI Pre-Assessment Activity before NTCC comes to give you the test. When you have completed the activity, please print out the document needed to give to the NTCC representative when she is here to give the TSI test. The tests are 6 dollars each, but the reading and writing parts are taken together so a student will need 12 dollars total for the tests. If you want math, it will be an additional 6 dollars. Click here for information about the TSI test. Then click here for sample questions of the test that will help you prepare. Then click here for the link to the pre-assessment acitivity required; then click "Get Started" and use your social security number if you do not have an NTCC student ID. For complete directions, go to Ms. Dauster's cubbie holes and get the instructions. You must have the certificate when NTCC comes to give you the TSI test.
We have students who never settle -- not in the classroom, on the field, or in our community. These well-rounded seniors reach higher in every aspect of school and life. Now is your chance to give something back by making sure these students get the local, regional, and national recognition they deserve. Encourage them to apply for the Wendy High School Heisman award by October 2, 2015. They'll get a chance to be honored at the Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York City and our school can receive donations!.
