This is exactly what we mean when we say MNPS is creating a 'College Going Culture' in our schools!
More than 1,000 students and parents came to school on a Saturday to get a head start on preparing for the ACT. Pearl-Cohn High School started hosting these Saturday sessions last semester and brought in 400-600 students every week!
This semester's classes started with the biggest crowd ever, and principal Milton Threadcraft is confident that many students and more will continue to come each Saturday through the end of the year.
These classes are open to all students in Metro schools. Students who attend will get breakfast and be split up into different seminars covering different sections of the test. Even middle school students are welcome to join in if they want to get an early start on their ACT preparations.
Classes start promptly at 7:00 a.m. each Saturday, so don't be late! Dr. Threadcraft told us that students need to come on time and ready to get serious about the ACT. He says that his students at Pearl-Cohn are already seeing results: so far this year more Pearl-Cohn students have scored a 20 or above than all of last year!
