GA Milestones / EOC
The Georgia Milestones is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning grades 3 through high school. The Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the content standards in the core content areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. It is designed to provide information about student achievement and readiness to move on to the next level of learning.
The Gateway tests are one way Gwinnett schools measure student learning of the school system’s curriculum— the Academic Knowledge and Skills or AKS. The High School Gateway is a writing test that assesses students’ language arts, science, and social studies knowledge and skills. As the parent of a high school student, you may have questions about this test, which your child must pass to earn a regular Gwinnett County high school diploma.
- The PSAT is administered free of charge to all sophomores at MVHS during the Fall Semester. Freshman and Juniors may register to take PSAT for a $17 fee. Freshman or Juniors at MVHS can register for the PSAT through Mypaymentsplus.com. Those who wish to register, but are not students at MVHS, will need to register through the Assessment Office at MVHS.
