High School Specifics: 90% attending four-year college. Student college acceptances for the past five years have included Sarah Lawrence University, Clark University, Temple University, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Penn State, Ursinus College, and University of Pennsylvania. While most students take the PSAT, Pre-ACT, and either SAT or ACT, we philosophically do not believe that college entrance tests, or standardized tests in general, provide accurate measurement of knowledge or academic capacity, and therefore all testing is optional, we do not collect averages, and many students apply to the growing number of test-optional colleges and universities.
