(State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) Students first enrolled in grade 9 or below in the 2011-2012 school year will be required to take the STAAR (End of Course) assessments as part of their graduation requirement. Students will be required to take EOC assessments in English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and US History.


The PSAT is a preliminary version of the SAT which will help students prepare for their college entrance SAT exams.


The website below will help you and your parents understand your PSAT score report.


Your 10th grade student will receive their PSAT study guide during their TEAMS period on Tuesday, September 13.  HEB ISD is paying for all sophomores to take the PSAT exam during the school day. Please encourage your student to review the PSAT study guide prior to the October 19th exam.


Juniors wanting to take the PSAT will need to register with Jackie Vernon, LD Bell’s bookkeeper, and pay the $20 registration fee.  The registration deadline is Friday, October 7th.  Students on Free and Reduced lunch qualify for a fee waiver.  We have a limited number of fee waivers so they will be distributed on a first come first serve basis.  If your junior student does not register for the PSAT, they will take the ASVAB test for free. 


If you have any questions, please contact the counseling office at 817-399-3188.
