The Practice High School Placement Test (HSPT) is an opportunity for 7th grade students to practice taking the test, familiarizing themselves with the format and focus of the HSPT.

In 8th grade, students take the HSPT, and their scores place them in consideration for high school classes, as well as scholarships. Parents/Guardians are invited to stay for the morning to meet SJND teachers and students. Student-led tours are available for parents interested in seeing the SJND campus. The day concludes with a pizza lunch for students.
