In the past four years, the Issaquah School District has seen a dramatic increase in students preparing to take the PSAT, the most widely used college admission exam in the country.

Participation for students taking the PSAT in the past four years has gone from 30 percent of sophomores and juniors taking the test to 89 percent, or 2,290 students, taking the exam.

The main driver of the increase is that the district’s high schools now offer the PSAT during the school day once every October.

The PSAT helps students prepare for the SAT college-admission exam, gives feedback about academic strengths and weaknesses, and is a gatekeeper for National Merit Scholarships.

The Issaquah Schools Foundation provided financial assistance for students to take the test.
