SAT Word of the Day

ACT Workkeys Test Date 29 April
Beginning this school year, there will be a statewide administration of the ACT Workkeys in place of the high school exit exam.  All 11th graders will take the test on 29 April 2015. Upon completion, testers will receive a National Career Readiness Certificate.  This industry-recognized credential certifies essential skills needed for workplace success.  Students may earn certificates up to the Platinum level, indicating they demonstrate preparedness for 90% of the jobs in South Carolina.

Students can practice for the Workkeys with sample questions at the jump here...

WorkKeys is a job skills assessment system developed by ACT, a national non-profit testing company. It is used across the nation to help individuals, educators, and employers identify the skills needed to be successful on the job and to determine where additional training can help develop a higher caliber workforce. It measures the "real world" skills employers believe are critical to job success. The system is designed to match prospective employees to jobs and careers. WorkKeys will measure your skills and compare them to the requirements of the jobs that  you want.

The WorkKeys assessments present workplace situations, reading materials, problems and messages for the employee to respond to and/or resolve. Each assessment is constructed with a number of levels, with each successive level more complex than the previous.

Shoes for EHS!
Thanks to our faith-based community (Islam Shrine Temple in partnership with the Joe Nathan Foundation) for their continued support of Edisto High School.  Member Patrick Thompson, assisted by Larry Johnson and several others from the Shrine Temple, donated 60 pairs of shoes to the school for distribution to students in need.  The Edisto High family thanks you for the wonderful gesture! 

ACT scores up
The state of South Carolina released the 2014 ACT scores 20 August and Edisto High made the state list of schools with statistically significant gains in average ACT scores this past year.  Our students raised their average composite score from 2013 by over 10 percent.

“South Carolina students are to be commended for their performance on the 2014 ACT test,” said Dr. Mick Zais, State Superintendent of Education. “These are positive results that we can build on for the future,” concluded Zais.

Way to go, Cougars!

Congratulations students, teachers, and parents - we are on the right track.
