STUDENT ASSESSMENT (Board Policy 2623) 

The state of Michigan requires all high school juniors to take a state wide assessment which will include the SAT.  It is a Montague graduation requirement that students receive a valid score on all mandatory state assessments.  This means that all 11th graders will take this state assessment test in the spring of each year.  It will provide students with a regular SAT score report that they can use to apply to a college or university.  SAT scores are used during the college admission process to assess high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.
