Test Prep: We strongly encourage all students to do some type of test preparation before taking the test(s).  Some may choose to use local or national test prep services, but there are many resources that are available to students for free, including In addition to Albert, don’t forget that Khan Academy (also free) remains a very powerful tool for SAT preparation. Next, the College Board’s website contains numerous previously released, full-length tests, along with answer keys and detailed explanations; and ACT provides similar resources that you can use to your advantage.

Molly Smith - SOTW

“Molly is a lioness– there’s no other word to describe her on the track. She is relentless and fierce in her workouts as well as in competition. I have enjoyed watching her work herself into a position as a college-eligible track athlete while just a sophomore. I predict great accomplishments ahead for her, not just on the track but in life, because she is such a hard worker and a persistent competitor. – Neville Anderson, Head Coach Varsity Track & Field

Jamari Welch - SOTW

“Jamari personifies the definition of a “hard worker” and he is blessed with both talent and mental strength. Recently, his hard work paid off in the form of a new school record with a leap of 21’8″ in the long jump event. Previously that school record stood for 15 years. He has agreed to try a new event to help the team in our quest for a state championship. He is every coach’s dream athlete. – Neville Anderson, Head Coach Varsity Track & Field
