- It's probably worth a try! But not district wide- start with a school or two. So often relatively untested programs and ideas are put into place on a large scale even though many mistakes can be avoided by learning from a small pilot program.

I heard from another parent that Allderdice was no longer a site for SAT testing. I think it might have had something to do with the size of work space.

Try anything to improve performance.

Last year, 'Dice was a testing site for one or two of the SAT test dates. Peabody and Central were the popular sites for our kids.
