Students who have already met the standard in at least one area of AIMS are encouraged to test to exceed. There are several excellent reasons for this:
- AIMS scores are included on all transcripts.
- Exceeding the standard is a requirement for the Regents Scholarship.
- Students who exceed in any area will be recognized for doing so on the graduation program. Also, students who exceed in all 3 areas will receive an additional recognition at graduation.
Students must sign up in order to test to exceed. Sign-up to test to exceed in the spring will be during the month of January. If a student doesn't sign up, he/she will not be able to test to exceed. If a student has already exceeded, he/she may not sign up to test to exceed again.
AIMS tutoring is available again this year. The tutoring will take place on campus before or after regular school hours. Certified teachers from McClintock will be the tutors. Tutoring groups are no larger than 5 students. Tutoring is available for juniors and seniors who have not met the standard in at least one area of AIMS, and freshman and sophomores who did not pass 8th grade AIMS. Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
If a student is interested, he/she may sign up in the Registration Office.Once a student is signed up, he/she will be scheduled to meet with a tutor.
