Free ACT / SAT Practice Program|
Safford High School is trying out the Method Test Prep program. MTP is an online ACT / SAT prep program and this year it is a free trial to all Safford HS.
This is a great opportunity for your child to have a practice site which comes with ACT / SAT test assessments in addition to many practice lessons with video and scripted explanations of each question. Attached is the link information for your students to set up an account and start practicing for the ACT /SAT assessments. See Mrs. Leitzke's email to get your students code for activation or refer to the hand out I gave them in English classes. If you have any issue feel free to contact me.
All 10th graders will be taking the ACT Aspire in November, students will have several weeks of practice to prepare for the official practice test from ACT. Please encourage your student to take advantage of this opportunity.
