In addition to serving as a testing center for national administrations of the ACT, SAT and AP exams, OPRFHS administers standardized tests to all students in grades 8, 9, 10 and 11. These tests serve several purposes.  They provide information to students and their families on the student's progress toward college and career readiness and help students prepare for their college entrance exams.  They also provide the school with objective measures by which to evaluate the effectiveness of our programs.
