Spring SAT Prep Classes

The Sammamish High School PTSA is sponsoring SAT Prep Classes.

Registrations for SAT Prep Classes at Sammamish High School are now being accepted.  Registration forms and payment information can be found on the website www.sammamishtotems.org under “Forms.”  Email sat.prep@sammamishtotems.org with questions.

The cost is $80 to attend both the Math and Verbal classes or $50 for a single class.  The PTSA offers a scholarship rate for students needing financial assistance of $30 total regardless of whether you register for both classes or a single class.  The student’s counselor will need to sign the student’s registration form in order for the student to receive the scholarship rate.

The classes will cover:

  • Exercises and drills;
  • Question-reading strategies:  How to efficiently determine what is being asked and how to find it in the text;
  • Practice-test evaluation:  What answers did you not get correct, and why?
  • Where to spend your study, and test-taking time, most;
  • In the case of the math class, actual math instruction, and
  • In the case of the verbal class, essay prompt practice, including sample essay evaluation and scoring rubric analysis, and some score-increasing tips.

The biggest benefit, however, may be the structure to focus on SAT test preparation that the classes provide.

The dates and times are as follows:

Math Skills:
Tuesdays, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, Room 327
Dates:  March 6, 13, 20, 27
Instructor:  Lorinda Flikkema

Verbal Skills:
Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, Room 312
Dates:  March 8, 15, 22, 29
Instructor:  Anne Fillmore


You may take the SAT at any of the seven administrations offered through the school year, but most students take the SAT once in the spring of their junior year. That way, they can take the test again in the fall of their senior year to see if they can improve their scores.

Class of 2018: Take the redesigned SAT.

Scores are posted according to the schedule under the “View Your Scores” link. You may not receive your scores in time to decide if you want to register for the next test date.
