Upper School Final Exams: Things to Know

The first semester final exams for upper school students (grades 6–12) are scheduled for December 16th — 18th.  

For planning purposes, please know that upper school students will be dismissed early all three days.    The purpose of early dismissal is to provide an opportunity for students to meet with teachers should they have questions or would like additional help prior to the exam. 

  • Upper School early dismissal as follows:
    • Students will be dismissed at 11:15am on Wednesday the 16h & Thursday the 17th
    • Students will be dismissed at 9:35 am on Friday.
  • 6th and 7th grade students do not have exams on Friday, so those students should stay home that day.
  • Upper School Learning Support Students schedules are different.  Please see email from Keyla Carson.
  • Students must be picked up when exams are over unless they have a practice right after school.

Follow this link for the first semester final exam schedule.

Parents of Learning Support students received an email from Keyla Carson regarding details for testing days. If you have not already done so, please fill out the Google Form attached to that email as soon as possible.
