  • Exams are written in the gym, library, multimedia lab, and some classrooms.
  • Students should check the list outside of the library or on the Main Office window prior to their examination to determine their writing location.
  • Any personal items, jackets, etc. need to be placed in a secure location prior to students going to their exam location (student lockers, vehicles, at home).
