Finding an athletic public high school that also offers the academics that match your athletic child’s abilities can be even more difficult. Parents can spend hours clicking on slow-to-load high school ranking sites, only to find that the schools are not easily accessible from their home, or not academically rigorous enough, or not a public high school.

I continue to use these three criteria in my normal essays and know they can help you write your high school essays for applications. Here are the three criteria I use for my essays.
High school exams can seem intimidating, with more content and weight than most other tests. However, with this guide, you will learn more about them and good test preparation strategies that will help you tackle these exams and your anxiety!

This is a good option for middle school students who feel the test grade would reflect their academic ability better than their transcript.
