The PSAT/NMSQT is a voluntary screening test for high school sophomores who wish to practice and sharpen their skills, and juniors who wish to participate in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
The PSAT focuses on the knowledge and skills that matter most for college and career readiness.

Skill based practice for Sophomores and Juniors to increase future SAT readiness
An online score report, including projected SAT® score ranges, state percentiles, and the ability to sort answer explanations by difficulty and question type
Through the PSAT/NMSQT®‘s student search feature, colleges and funding entities can offer additional information and opportunities.
For Juniors, the PSAT is the entry point for prestigious National Merit Qualifying Scholarships

Personal Curriculum (PC)
A Personal Curriculum (PC) modifies certain requirements of the Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) which must be met for the awarding of a Fowlerville High School diploma. For students without disabilities, modification of credit requirements is limited to a specific set of options set forth in the law. For students with disabilities who have IEPs, other modifications of credit requirements may be sought. Please note that the intent of the PC is to allow some flexibility in the MMC while holding all students accountable to as many of the content standards as practicable. For allowable modifications, find the Personal Curriculum Modification Options sheet at the end of our most current course guide.

Stressed Out? Overwhelmed with all that is going on in your life? Looking for help? Join an Educational Group at FHS!
What is an Educational Group?
Educational Groups are designed to help students learn how to cope with issues in their life. Each group will consist of 6-8 students and will meet once a week for a 4-6 weeks. Adult co-facilitators (counselors) will lead each group session. Students can join a group by signing up with their counselor or by filling out the sign up form available in the main office.
Confidentiality is Key!
Some of the issues addressed in educational groups are of a personal nature. Facilitators and students who choose to participate in groups are expected to respect the confidentiality of group members by not sharing information from group, to anyone outside of the group. Failure to maintain confidentiality may exclude students from continued participation in the group.

The program we are now using for students' Educational Development Plans.
