LHHSLooking for a way to help your kid get into the college of his or her choice?

Lake Highlands High School has been given a grant to offer free to students the Princeton Review – that’s the highly regarded SAT prep course which bumps the average student’s test scores 250 points. The next session will be offered after school Mondays-Thursdays February 26 through April 18, and you can choose the 4:10 to 5:20 p.m. session or 5:20 to 6:10.

Long-time LHHS senior AP English teacher David Wood teaches the English portion of the course, and Tommy Lamberth, an LHHS graduate and current LHFC algebra and geometry instructor, teaches the math portion.

The course is open to all Wildcats, but juniors are given priority since they’re working now to boost scores for the fall entrance exams. Sophomores are encouraged to enroll if space remains available.

The Review is part of the larger Wildcat After Hours program, which seeks to keep students supervised and productive after school and on Saturdays with activities ranging from cooking classes to Zumba, from community service to modeling, from hair braiding to jujitsu (and many more). Activities are free and mostly taught by LHHS teachers who often end up mentoring their charges as much about life as the topic at hand.

If there’s no school, there’s no course that day, and bus service is available for kids who normally take the bus home. Parents can access registration forms, as well as other helpful SAT planning documents, on the LHHS Edline page (see the news section) and sign up by contacting program coordinator Tara Fuller at tara.fuller@risd.org or 469-593-1131.
