All MPS 11th graders will take the ACT in school on February 20, 2019

The ACT test, required by many colleges and universities for admission, is administered to all 11th graders in Wisconsin. MPS juniors will take the ACT in school on Wednesday, February 20. Students are asked to make every effort to be on time for school in order for testing to start on time.

The ACT is also required by many scholarship applications, so having an ACT score can be a stepping stone to higher education and scholarships. The test is considered to be a key step in accessing a college and career pathway.

Because of testing, students in grades 9, 10, and 12 do not attend school on February 20.
