“Access to rigorous coursework, teacher training in college readiness skills, and student support with enrichment activities all factor into CISD’s exceptional test scores,” stated Conroe ISD College Readiness Specialist Laura Willard. She continued, “The Conroe ISD College Readiness Department also supports students with enrichment opportunities offered at all high school campuses. This fall, over 700 sophomores and juniors participated in classes and boot camps in preparation for the October PSAT/NMSQT. Using these test results, CISD teachers along with the College Readiness Department build opportunities for juniors and seniors to succeed on both the SAT and ACT exams.”
In addition to these opportunities, each high school has a College and Career Center that counsels students in the postsecondary options available to them. For more information on college readiness, please visit the CISD College Readiness webpage.
