Important information


  1. Final tests are not partial, they are final. This means they must include basic skills for each subject covered in the semester. The structure of the final tests will be multiple choice and critical thinking questions.
  2. Reviews will include skills that will be measured in the test. Yet, those skills will not be presented in the test using the same form or structure as in the reviews.
  3. Try to avoid students being absent for the finals. Any reposition will only be allowed if it is due to a justified cause.
  4. Teachers will take their lunch break at 12:00 noon and cannot be responsible for the students after 12:00. They will be busy in the afternoon grading tests, posting grades in the isiNet internet portal, and preparing their end-of-semester paperwork.
