JOINING FORCES HOW COLLABORATION BETWEEN SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS IS CHANGING LOCAL EDUCATION.

espite modern education’s best efforts to equip 21st-century classrooms with all the gadgets and gizmos promising to yield society-ready students, there are some things students simply cannot learn within the brick-and-mortar confines of a classroom. To be truly prepared for the real world, students must actually experience the real world—not simply hear or read about it. That requires help from the community. Fortunately, in Cincinnati, many organizations have stepped up to the plate. Through a recent uptick in partnerships and collaborations with organizations outside the academic bubble, Cincinnati students are seeing, hearing, and experiencing the real world firsthand. “Students get so much more from their education when we can tie classroom learning to real-life experiences,” says Cincinnati Public Schools Superintendent Laura Mitchell. “Being able to see professionals who look like them and who can offer real stories about what it takes to achieve what they have is invaluable.” In the following stories, we highlight just a handful of the area’s smartest collaborations. —ELIZABETH MILLER WOOD

HOW IT WORKS: Online shoppers enter their demographic information and body photos into the app, then connect through online retailers to see how specific clothing items would fit in real life. “It’s entering into a world of shopping that no one has really thought of,” says team member Ricardo Godoy. PANEL FEEDBACK: The Sharks loved the uniqueness and accessibility of the concept (the app would be free, with revenue generated through ads on retailers’ sites), and thought the online shopping market was an innovative market space.

PANEL FEEDBACK: The Sharks believed there was a large market for these products, given the number of Americans who travel abroad knowing no other language than English, though they had concerns around the practicality of product development. COMPANY NAME: BUDGET CHECK TEAM MEMBERS: Seth Friedman, Matt Kreines, Tim Santos-Heiman PRODUCT: Budgeting app for first-time budgeters HOW IT WORKS: Linking to banks and credit cards, the personalized budgeting app tracks user spending in real time and categorizes spending into simple budget categories. “It helps people new to budgeting get on their feet and shows them the ropes,” says team member Seth Friedman. Higher subscription levels provide access to personal financial advisors. PANEL FEEDBACK: The Sharks saw a large potential market, but the cost of employing financial experts was far higher than the students anticipated. Also, improvements were needed for the “rudimentary” interface. — E . M .W.

JOSEPH J. DEHNER, A LAWYER WHO chairs the international practice at Frost Brown Todd, and his wife Rev. Noel Julnes-Dehner, an Episcopal priest associated with Christ Church Cathedral and St. Thomas Episcopal Church, cofounded the Summer Camp Reading program for struggling local third graders in 2010. The goal was to help readers who didn’t have access to outside resources in preparation for the Ohio Third Grade Reading Guarantee testing. Eight years later, several hundred students have been impacted. PASSION AND INSPIRATION? “I tutored students at Chase Elementary

School under the auspices of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati in 2009–2010,” Julnes-Dehner says.“I could see a huge need for the services. It was my husband’s idea to create our own free reading camp.” THE GROWTH? “We hired Dianne Ebbs, retired principal, as director,”

Dehner says. “Schools referred students to the program. Ebbs and the site directors also reached out to a variety of schools, organizations, and churches.” Julnes-Dehner says, “By 2017, over 100 second and third grade readers attended nine Summer Camp Reading sites. This year, six-week camps are at Wesley Chapel Mission Center, Christ Church Cathedral, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, St. Simon of Cyrene Episcopal Church, and the Church of the Advent beginning in June.” IMPROVEMENT? “Average oral reading proficiency scores at six-week

camps rose 29 percent in 2017,” Dehner says. “Test scores at each SCR site show significant improvement in word recognition, comprehension, and reading fluency.” THE RESULTS? “SCR empowers children,” Julnes-Dehner says. “We

help them with reading, with developing a growth mindset, in a nurturing environment. Each site develops a project to give back to the community, which is an empowering experience.” Learn more at summercampreading.org — L A U R A H O B S O N

innovation Innovation in education Education

IN THE GHOST OF TOYOTA’S HIGH-BAY, INDUSTRIAL LABORATORY IN Erlanger, the first phase of a major renovation is taking place—the creation of a jobs-focused high school in Boone County. The idea for the Ignite Institute, set to open in August 2019 for its first academic year with close to $18 million invested, was fostered in 2016 after collaborative meetings among 50 leaders in education, business, and government in the Greater Cincinnati area. Those discussions came after Toyota’s departure from Erlanger to Plano, Texas. Dave Fleischer, executive director of strategic partnerships for Ignite School, says the vision focuses on developing a curriculum around the day-to-day strategies and issues involved in five regional workforce sectors: advanced manufacturing, supply chains, health and science, information technologies, and construction technologies. Roughly 600 students have expressed interest so far, but Fleischer says priority will be given to students with a passion for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) and related career paths. “The successful student coming out of Ignite will [not only] have a passion for a career,” Fleischer says. “They will be positioned for a career path, and will also be able to communicate inside the normal work of their business environment.” Local partners from St. Elizabeth Healthcare to Cincinnati Museum Center will work with teachers for the school’s hands-on, project-focused curriculum, and Fleischer says the space itself will seek to replicate the work environment for each of the school’s workforce sectors. “I haven’t seen a school that has challenged its business involvement like Ignite has,” Fleischer says. — P A T R I C K M U R P H Y

Getting Kicks WHEN JOSHUA HARDIN JOINED CINCINNATI PUBLIC SCHOOLS AS THE athletics manager two years ago, he noticed a lack of collaboration between his department and elementary afterschool programs. “Traditionally, the athletics office was not providing the resources to elementary schools,” Hardin says. “So we floated [an] idea to Kings Hammer and FC Cincinnati.” It was an eight-week program around futsal, a type of soccer played in a gymnasium that uses a heavier ball so players can focus on foot control. Both teams expressed enthusiasm about supporting the eight elementary schools that are part of the program. “The puzzle pieces came together pretty perfectly,” Hardin says. Students started off talking about cases of bullying (an anti-bullying message was an important part of the program) before working through futsal drills with their Kings Hammer coaches. Toward the end, FC Cincinnati players like Russell Cicerone and Tomi Ameobi not only joined the practice, they contributed to the anti-bullying conversation. While teaching students the right way to compete in athletics was the program’s main goal, Hardin adds: “The kids were in awe that somebody who was professional was there.” — P . M .

How Does Your Garden Grow? Grow??

THE CWC COLLABORATION

The Vermont School Outdoor Learning Program is more than five years old, but like the vegetables the students grow in their gardens, it still feels fresh. The gardens, now including 26 plots at Wyoming City Schools’ three primary buildings, are home to hundreds of crops grown by K–4th grade students each year. The culminating event is the annual Harvest Festival in September, where those veggies are turned into a meal for the community to enjoy. Kids are involved all year long, learning about economics and entrepreneurship. Third grade teacher Adam Beard, who started the program, recently received the Leavey Award for Excellence in Private Enterprise Education, a national nod given to only seven educators in 2017. Wyoming students aren’t the only ones who benefit from the Outdoor Learning Program. Money raised benefits a sister school that was built in Sierra Leone, Africa. “Overall, we have made $48,000 over the past five years,” Beard says. “We hope to build another school in another village. We are currently trying to raise the $20,000 it will take to fi nish the school.” Another cool part of the program? All the ways it collaborates with CWC, the neighborhood restaurant owned by sisters Kelly Trush and Caitlin Steininger, whose kids attend Wyoming schools. Here we highlight how CWC works with Beard to make some of this happen. — W E S L E Y C A R R O L L

Steininger stops by the classroom to give students cooking advice, answering their questions about recipe creation. It’s her favorite part of the process. “You can see the wheels turn in their heads,” she says. “You can definitely see kids who will love to cook later in life.” Students decide which meals they might prepare for the Harvest Festival and which crops they’d like to grow in the gardens. There’s a competition at the school where the kids cook their recipes and parents choose the top three items. Teachers then decide the final dish. “The school will then plant crops based around the winning recipe,” Steininger says. The last winning dishes—there were two—were couscous with fresh herbs and vegetables and vegetable chili. Last year, students held a tea party event at CWC, preparing special tea flavors for guests. “We had three seatings at the restaurant that filled up immediately,” Steininger says. Students served tables, worked in the kitchen, and taught guests tea etiquette. The kids’ tea flavors are still available on the restaurant’s menu. The kids also grow crops in the school garden for CWC to use in their own dishes. “Adam Beard is very generous and will ask us what we want grown for our summer menu,” Steininger says. — W . C .

mission space The Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy is out of this world. The seven-day program, held at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Alabama, is tailor-made for high school students interested in STEM-related careers. Students in the program, open to children of current full-time Honeywell employees, participate in various space-related team-building activities such as designing, creating, and testing model rockets, simulated astronaut training sessions, coding challenges, and more. And who better to teach students about STEM than experts in the field? Scientists, engineers, and former astronauts share their expertise and help students strengthen their leadership skills. This year, 325 students from 35 countries and 25 U.S. states and territories attended the Academy, and four of those participants were from the Cincinnati region. Here’s what three of them had to say about the experience. — E V A N C R E W

Joseph “Joey” Lakeberg, 11th grade, Lakota West High School Amanda Maurits, 11th grade, Hamilton High School Nicholas Sanders, 12th grade, Colerain High School

Best part of the program? Lakeberg: If I had to choose, I would go with the moonwalk, when we got buckled to this seat that was connected to tracks on the ceiling. When you stood up, it simulated what the gravity would be on the moon. It is a lot of fun! It looked completely ridiculous, but it was really cool how high and far you could jump! Maurits: My favorite part of the program was the mission simulation. The mission was a mock space mission where everyone had a specific task that they needed to complete. I loved being able to work with all of these talented people on my team and seeing all of their skills shine through during the mission. How cool was it to meet scientists, engineers, and former astronauts?

Most valuable takeaway? Sanders: The new friendships that were fostered during my week in the Academy. I am still in correspondence with many friends from around the globe. Lakeberg: The most important thing I took from this program was a greater appreciation for other cultures. People from every continent were there. Just from the five guys that I roomed with, there were people from Australia, the Netherlands, and South Africa. Before going I didn’t know many people outside of Ohio, let alone across oceans. While there, I made friends with and speak regularly with people from all over the world. Did the camp influence your future career plans? Lakeberg: It’s still too early for any specific concrete plans for me, but I am strongly considering a technology career. Some relevant things we did were writing a program for a sensor on a model rocket, building a model of a heat shield, and talking with a NASA engineer, all of which I found fascinating.

Maurits: They taught me so many things that will be useful in the future, like learning to make connections with people and not to be afraid to go outside of my comfort zone.

Maurits: I have always wanted to be in a career in the STEM field, and thanks to this program my love has grown. I am so lucky that the program allowed me to see that a life involving science and mathematics is the one meant for me.

Sanders: I learned that successful people don't tend to start successful; they build up their success throughout their life.

Sanders: I had already planned to work in physics or astronomy beforehand, so this program simply reaffirmed my interest.

Lakeberg: The most important thing I learned was the value of seizing opportunities. You never know what internship or college visit might lead you to become the first person to go to Mars.

TEACHER SPOTLIGHTS

Student artists team up with senior citizens to create a 3D art installation for a downtown retirement community. When Episcopal Retirement Services opened a new senior living community on Central Parkway in 2016, they found themselves fortuitously across the street from the renowned School for Creative and Performing Arts. Naturally, the two organizations made a friendly, neighborly connection, but it didn’t take long for the relationship to deepen. The secret ingredient? Art. It started with SCPA art students presenting temporary art installations, like paper works, to help brighten the interiors of the retirement facility. “The facility is large and really beautiful, but really blank—like a blank canvas,” says SCPA art teacher Melanie Hart, who oversaw the projects. In March 2018, the relationship went a step further when 14 sixth- and seventh-grade SCPA students worked side-by-side with ERS seniors on a collaborative clay project that would become a permanent installation at the retirement facility. Based on the book Only One You, which celebrates individuality, the students and seniors crafted about 200 clay fish sculptures that would then be kiln-fired, painted, and hung at the residence. While the event itself was fun and creative, it was the bigger picture that Hart hopes students will remember most. “It’s about the students understanding the importance and responsibility of giving back in some way,” she says. — E .

ROSIE SANSALONE, eighth grade language arts teacher at The Summit Country Day School Her “Hear My Story; Be My Voice” project immerses students in the community when they conduct interviews with individuals who have faced or stood up to injustice. Sansalone says students have heard stories of survivors, WWII veterans, civil rights leaders, and others, putting a face to the history learned in the classroom. “What these community members can teach my students is so much more powerful than what they can gain from a textbook.” — S .

OO MANY SCHOOLS’ NAMES HAVE BECOME SYNONYMOUS WITH TRAGEDY: COLUMBINE, SANDY HOOK, AND MOST RECENTLY, PARKLAND, FLORIDA’S MARJORY STONEMAN DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL. Those are the mass shootings, but over recent decades other horrors faded from the collective memory of all but those most immediately involved—a student with a single target, street violence bleeding onto school grounds, suicidal youth, or kids showing off guns and accidentally hurting themselves or others. Sometimes it’s near misses, like in 2016, when shocked teachers found a group of North College Hill Elementary kindergarteners playing with a gun at dismissal. But also in 2016, a 14-year-old boy in Madison, feeling friendless, showed up at lunch and shot two other students with a handgun. Into this reality, parents send their kids out the door each day, trusting they’ll come back. The debate about school safety has reached new levels in recent months as students organized walkouts and the student-led March For Our Lives in hundreds of cities nationwide. Meanwhile, President Trump has been advocating for arming teachers and Kentucky’s state legislature is considering Senate Bill 103, which would allow school board and private schools to tap teachers or staff with concealed carry licenses to become school marshals. The politics of school safety is reaching thunderous levels, while many want to know basic information: How can I be sure my kid is safe? ACCORDING TO RACHEL HANSEN AT THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR EDUCATION STAtistics, 92.4 percent of schools have a written plan for active shooter scenarios and 94.6 percent drill students on some sort of lockdown procedure. In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, the U. S. Department of Education (USDE) released an updated Guide for Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans, shifting away from the Columbine-era lockdown (shelter in place) advice, and instead suggesting that, depending upon the situation, students and teachers weigh their options: Run. Hide. Fight. The logic is that if you can run away from a shooter, do it. Get out. If you can’t, then hide. (Lock and barricade the doors, turn out the lights, and hide along the wall closest to the exit, but out of view of the hallway.) And if running or hiding is no longer an option, the guide explains “…as a last resort, when confronted by the shooter, adults in immediate danger should consider trying to disrupt or incapacitate the shooter by using aggressive force and items in the environment, such as fire extinguishers and chairs.” As the USDE guidance explained, when active shooter events ended before law enforcement arrived, in 16 out of 41 events, the victims stopped the attacker themselves. In response to these recommendations, many schools in Ohio and nationally have adopted ALICE’s defensive protocols. ALICE is an acronym for Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate, and while the training has resulted in head-

lines like Mother Jones’s “Schools Are Training Second-Graders to Attack Mass Shooters,” the training company insists it does not teach fighting skills, but rather countering through use of noise or distractions. There have been concerns raised, most recently in a story in The Atlantic, that these drills are traumatic to children left to regularly contemplate cowering or countering for their lives. (Of course, compelled by USDE guidance and responsibility for students’ safety, it’s fair to ask what alternatives schools have.) As Carson Abt, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, recently wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times, “My teacher’s training saved lives.” Active shooter drills, she continued, are not a panacea for school shootings, but are “an essential part of keeping schools safe.” Of course others have argued that the element of surprise can be lost if, like at Stoneman Douglas, the shooter has been through the trainings himself as a student and knows what response to expect and how to circumvent it. In February, Cincinnati Public Schools Superintendent Laura Mitchell held a press conference at which she detailed the district’s efforts to protect students, which include a Safety Task Force, combining police, fire, FBI, and Homeland Security experts to develop strategies to enhance safety. CPS students do monthly emergency drills, which include ALICE drills, and across CPS schools there is closedcircuit monitoring through more than 4,000 digital cameras, with 90 security assistants working in school buildings and 14 Cincinnati Police officers doubling as School Resource Officers (SRO) in high schools. Of course, the potential for a shooting often depends upon the mental state of students, and here Lauren Worley, CPS’s chief communications and engagement officer points to a particular strength—CPS is one of few districts in the country with mental health partners working at every one of its schools. In the weeks after Parkland, Sycamore Community Schools released a video to address safety concerns.


The district set to ease concerns by detailing Sycamore’s safety committee comprised of Blue Ash, Montgomer y, Sy m mes, a nd Lovela nd Police; Symmes Loveland Fire Department; and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. Annually every Blue Ash and Montgomery police officer goes through an active shooter training, and students participate in three annual drills. All teachers now have emergency window punches (and safety glasses) so they can break windows and evacuate students if necessary. But it’s not all drills. “Mental health is a critical component in safety and security,” says Superintendent Frank Forsthoefel. To that end, beginning in the 2018–2019 school year, Sycamore will begin partnering with Mindpeace and Cincinnati Children’s to provide on-site therapists at the elementary schools, and the program will expand to the district’s remaining schools over time. Mason students do qua r terly ALICE trainings. “Probably 15 years ago, I remember in lockdown drills we wouldn’t even use the language,” says Tracey Carson, public information officer. “Now we know because of evidence that’s not helpful.” There’s a balance between being realistic about the purpose of the drills, but not scaring the kids. “And quite honestly, it’s also normal for all of us to be having some stress,” Carson says. So Mason teaches students breathing and cool-down techniques to do during the drills. “It’s heartbreaking,” says Carson, “that we’re coming up with ways to keep young children calm and happy during these kind of things,” but unless a wide variety of political issues change dramatically, “I think right now as schools we’re tasked with doing our very best to keep kids safe.” Carson notes the school’s tip line is incredibly important. This year, the line has received more than 70 tips, half about depression, self-harm, or suicide. “Kids do say something when they see something concerning,” Carson says. “They are able to take action and save lives.” Given the layout of the schools, with the high school sharing

a campus with the community center and the middle and intermediate school all in a one-block area with the police station, city police walk the schools as a beat. This is in addition to a DARE officer who also gets to know students by teaching sixth grade health class. Still, with all this, Mason students had a natural response to the most recent mass shooting, and Ca rson says the ad m i n istration worked with students to provide a safe place (inside the gym) for their March walkout and demonstration to grieve Parkland’s students. Seven hundred of the school’s 3,600 students participated. “There was some degree of skepticism that we were trying to make students stay inside so they didn’t get as much publicity,” Carson says. Yet the security concern was realized a few hours later, when police arrested a former Mason High School student with a loaded handgun outside the school. At La Salle High School, teachers and staff are encouraged to have conversations with students in their classrooms during drills, explains Principal Aaron Marshall, and talk out their responses to various scenarios: What if there were an active shooter across the street? What if one was in the building? In addition to safety trainings based upon ALICE,

at this Catholic all-boys school, the attitude is, as Marshall puts it, “We are our brothers’ keepers.” And so a big part of keeping one another safe is relationship-building and communication. Like everywhere else, the horror of Parkland laid a new emotional burden on students. Rather than a walkout, “We joined in prayer, and joined as a whole school” for those affected by the shooting, naming each of the students lost to the shooting over the loudspeaker in a school-wide reflection at the time of other schools’ walkouts. Each student has religion class every day, and so students were encouraged to discuss the shooting and their feelings about it. “Here you can openly talk about prayer and talk about faith,” explains Marshall. “So when you get those raw emotions from kids, whatever they may be, sadness to anger to anything else, we can talk about that.” Faith gives them a space to come together. At La Salle, teachers and students are doing what so many do privately at a time when all the nation’s schools’ trainings and SROs and tip lines and security cameras are good measures, but not enough to quell the crisis of school violence. They do what parents do when they see violence in the news but nevertheless send their kids off to school. They pray.

SCHOOLS GUIDE 2018 Welcome to the 2018 Schools Guide, Cincinnati Magazine’s most comprehensive guide to nearly 400 schools in the Cincinnati region. Designed as a resource for both new and established families, the Schools Guide offers relevant and up-to-date information on schools throughout Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana. Whether you’re on the hunt for a new school for your kids or you’re just checking up on your old alma mater, the Schools Guide is a one-stop shop for essential school information. 1 8 C I N C I N N AT I M A G A Z I N E .

Because the Cincinnati region spans three states, the Schools Guide is organized by state, and listings contain statespecific data for each school and district. Additionally, the Guide lists some national data, such as ACT and SAT scores. For public schools, we include the district and the high schools within that district. All private schools, including elementary and middle schools, are listed. The public school data was collected solely from the Department of Education databases for Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Private schools are not required to divulge data to the state, however, many have voluntarily reported theirs to the Guide. In Ohio and Kentucky, the Departments of Education have been working to change the way public school performance is reported. For Ohio schools, some newer data points are available in the listings, including the K–3 literacy score, which measures how successful districts are in helping struggling readers reach proficiency. This year we’ve also added the Prepared For Success percentage score, which measures how well high school students are prepared for future opportunities. Updated ACT scores were not reported by the state this year; we have included the average scores from 2015–2016. For Kentucky, newer data points are expected for next year’s Guide. For Indiana schools, we’ve added the College and Career Readiness measure. For more information, please visit the Department of Education websites for Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana.

ACING THE ACT

THE ACT PREPARES STUDENTS FOR COLLEGE. BUT HOW SHOULD THEY PREPARE FOR THE ACT? — M O R G A N Z U M B I E L

WHIZ KID

ONLY ONE-TENTH OF ONE PERCENT OF STUDENTS WHO TAKE THE ACT GET A PERFECT SCORE OF 36. LAST DECEMBER, HIGHLANDS HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR WILL BURNHAM BECAME ONE OF THEM.

HOW DID IT FEEL TO GET THAT PERFECT SCORE? I was actually in chemistry class and started jumping up and down when I saw my score. I kinda got some weird looks, but then I said I got a 36 and we all had a mini celebration. WHY STRIVE FOR A 36? I had already taken the test once before and got a 35. I took it sophomore year as a diagnostic to see how much I’d need to study. I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I knew that I could do better. NEARLY EVERY COLLEGE-BOUND HIGH

school student takes the ACT once, twice, maybe even three times. It’s universally difficult, not to mention stressful. (Ask any senior and they’ll tell you all about it.) That little two-digit score matters a whole lot on those college applications. So how can high school students make sure they get a good one? Start early, says Martha Geller, director of the College Information Center at Walnut Hills High School, who is the self-proclaimed test prep legend of Cincinnati. She’s been teaching ACT, SAT, and PSAT prep courses to Cincinnati kids (and those kids’ kids) for 45 years, familiarizing them with the format and content of the tests, so it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about earning those coveted high scores. The fi rst step is a well-rounded academic background. “You can’t start [preparing] when you’re a junior,” Geller says. “Achieving good scores on the ACT is all about taking a rigorous academic course load.” If students form good study habits in school, they’ll be better prepared for standardized tests, too. But a 4.0 GPA doesn’t automatically guarantee a high ACT score. Students

also have to be solid test-takers, and a one-and-done approach to the ACT isn’t the best tactic. To work their way up to their best score, Geller recommends students take the ACT three or four times. Yes, it means waking up early on a Saturday, but the extra tests are worth it, especially if you want to have time to answer all of the questions. “It’s all in the pacing,” Geller says. “Seventy percent of students run out of time the fi rst time.” One of Geller’s tips may be hard to swallow for today’s device-dependent students. She says to ditch the calculator if you can—it might slow you down. “You have to do 60 math problems in 60 minutes,” she says. “Know when you really need it and when you don’t. The kids who get the 36 can either use the calculator quickly or they don’t need it at all.” Geller’s biggest piece of advice? Practice, practice, practice—and then practice some more. Like anything else, test taking is a skill that requires time and conscious effort to perfect. “You don’t just go out on that football field,” she says. “You don’t just go up on that stage. You don’t just put your art up on that wall. You do it for years and years and years.”

WHAT PREPARED YOU FOR THE ACT? I’ve taken a lot of AP classes. Highlands has been preparing us to take the ACT since kindergarten, basically. The end goal of our high school education is to get the high scores on these tests because that’s what’s preparing us for college. WHAT’S MOST DIFFICULT ABOUT THE TEST? The time constraint. It makes it really hard. For most kids, if you gave them all the time in the world, they could figure out the problems. I look up at the clock a lot to try to pace myself. HOW CAN STUDENTS MANAGE TEST ANXIETY? It comes with the territory. It’s a test that’s becoming increasingly important for your future; it’s hard not to sit in that desk and freak out a little. Try not to think so much about your score. Think about the problems. Take some deep breaths and have confidence in yourself. The big thing for me is not being on electronics before I go to bed. I try to make it as calm as possible. The night before, I don’t study at all. That just stresses you out. — M . Z .
