GRCHS School Day Testing

2016-2017

GRCHS is adopting a one-day Fall & one-day Spring testing schedule in order to best position students for college testing and to be least intrusive to classroom instruction. All School Day testing is free for students and parents. Each test/program on these two dates (Oct. 19 and Mar. 1) are required of all students. Attendance will be taken.
