We are excited to share a few helpful ideas to maximize this year. 
 

1.  Year Letter
Please review the G11 Junior Letter. It details the most critical areas to have a successful year: Courses, College Tests, AP exams, Choosing a College Major / Career etc. (Under Junior Tab)

2. Course Selection

HL and SL Courses are important particularly as you consider your college major. Make sure your courses provide the right level of rigor.

 

3. SAT Registration
Plan out when to take your SAT Tests. We have 6 tests each year at AIS: We hope many take the next test – see Application Items SAT/ACT tab for details…

SAT Plan

* It is expected that all G11s take the SAT 1 Test this year. We also encourage G11s to take at 1-2 subject tests.

Please plan accordingly…
