Pawtucket School Department, the 3rd largest school district in Rhode Island, partnered with Horizon Education to teach a SAT Prep Course by their own expert teachers in the spring for three of their high schools: Charles E. Shea High School, William E. Tolman High School, and Jacqueline Walsh School for the Arts. The partnership will empower all participating Pawtucket students to prepare for postsecondary success and provide them with a comprehensive breakdown of the SAT and proven test-taking strategies for the different sections and question types.

Horizon course teachers place a high value on diversity and inclusion in the PSAT/SAT prep classroom. They prioritize creating a welcoming and supportive environment for all learners. Special attention is given to students with disabilities and those learners who may be struggling with grade-level learning expectations. Checks for understanding, reteaching, and small-group breakouts are common strategies used to ensure all learners are able to engage with PSAT/SAT prep material. Pre-assessment and subsequent progress monitoring assessments will drive the engaging and responsive teaching. This instant student reporting assists Horizon teachers in making the best decisions to support each student and students can then begin to set personal academic goals.
