Dear BHSEC Families,
Thank you to everyone who came out for the first-ever BHSEC Manhattan PTA Wine Tasting and Sale. Thank you especially to our hosts Jane and Eliot Rennert and Rennert’s Gallery.
If you can only come to one PTA meeting this year, make it this one! On February 28, Dr. Jed Applerouth of Applerouth Tutoring Services will discuss the New Landscape of College Admissions Testing.
In recent years the testing landscape has experienced seismic shifts. The Common Core has transformed the world of admission testing, and the ACT has rocketed to national prominence. The SAT now emphasizes reading and critical thinking while the ACT covers more math and science and emphasizes speed. The tests have never overlapped to this extent, but significant differences remain. To help you make informed decisions regarding testing, come learn about the major differences and similarities between the tests. Learn how to structure an effective testing plan and discuss the optimal strategy to minimize stress and get your kids ready to hit their best scores for scholarships and admissions.
I look forward to seeing you then.
PTA President, BHSEC Manhattan
P.S. Save the date: The Bard Bash will be on May 7!
