Much of anxiety of taking the HSPT test is focused on the math and
the quantitative skills sections. In response, Saint Mary’s has
decided to provide two basic math review workshops on Saturday –
December 14th. This optional workshop will provide eighth graders the
opportunity to review basic math skills, practice with timed testing,
and get a few hints on how to approach the math and quantitative
sections of the HSPT test.
This workshop and review is not strategy based. It is a review of
basic math and pre-algebra skills. We cannot guarantee that math
scores on the HSPT will improve if you enroll your child in this
workshop, but it is an opportunity to review and understand the types
of problems that most likely will be on the HSPT.
This workshop and review session is optional and is open to 50
students per session. We will be running two sessions on December
14th. One at 8:30 am and one at 1:00 pm.
The cost of the workshop is $50.00 which includes all supplies and a
bagel, fruit, sweet treats, and juice break. If your child is on a
special diet, please have your child bring a snack for this workshop.
