Starting the week of December 11, 2018, students will be able to view their results of the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 8/9 exam via the CollegeBoard website.  If you do not already have an account with CollegeBoard and would like to view your scores, you will need to create a free account and then follow the instructions below.  Once you log in onto CollegeBoard account and view your score, you will have access to the test questions that were in the exam as well.  However, if you wish to have your PSAT test booklet, you may stop by the guidance office to pick up your booklet.  We will have the test booklets available until January 23, 2018.

 

 

Helping Students Access Their Scores 

  • After students log in to their College Board account, they should click Add Scores. In the Matching Tool, it is essential that the information in their account matches what they entered on their answer sheet. For example, if they put “Elizabeth” on their answer sheet and “Beth” in their account, their scores will not load. If they need to change their name, they must call Customer Service. All other changes can be made right in their account.

 

  • If that still doesn’t populate the scores, the student will be prompted to indicate which test they’re missing and put in their unique access code to assist the match.

 

If you need your access code, please contact your academic advisor and they will provide you the code.

 

Here is a link to help you understand your scores:

  • Understanding Your Scores: This page is a good resource for students and parents, particularly for understanding percentiles.

 

 

If you are still unable to view your scores after trying the above steps, you will need to contact CollegeBoard at 866-433-7728.

 

 

We will also have a Scores Back Night for parents and students hosted by Futureology on January 23, 2018 at San Juan Hills High School at 6:00 PM.  At this event, you will be updated on the most important parts of the score report and how to understand it.

 

 See what it all means - the scoring and interpretation

 Learn how to interact with your score report through filtering test questions

 Get free, personalized SAT study suggestions, tips, and practice

 Relate your score to the SAT and college admissions

 

You must register for this event, so please click here if you wish to attend.

 

 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the guidance office.

Thank you.

We are looking forward to working with students to plan the 2017/2018 school year. We are excited to introduce a new advisement procedure in order to meet individually with each student.

 

Beginning February 8th, teachers will discuss with students their placement for the next school year in each subject area. Students have been pre-enrolled in their core classes in the subjects of English, math, science, social science and world language by CUSD District criteria.  Teachers will then review student placement and adjust courses if necessary.  They will also be adding higher level math, science and world language courses for students based on college admission requirements.

 

From February 21 through February 28, students will choose their electives using their Student Portal.  When students access their portal they will be able to see the core classes in which they were placed. During the month of March, the Academic Advisors will meet with each student individually to discuss their graduation and college entrance status and fine tune students’ class selection according to their postsecondary plans. Students will be sent home with a copy of the key points of the meeting to share with their parents.

 

If after the March advisement process, you have questions; your child’s Academic Advisor will be available to address questions.

 

In addition, if you need more in-depth college and long term academic planning, the district has opened a new service free of charge to all high school students called FUTUREology. They are located in the Mission Viejo mall and are available for appointments Monday through Friday from 1:30 pm to 9:00pm. Here is their website:  www.cusd-futureology.org .

 

February 8th – February 16th - Teacher Placement and Adjustment

February 21st – February 28th  – Students choose electives via portal

February 28th – March 31st – One-on-one meeting with Academic Advisor during school day
