    The SAT will be given to all 11th graders at Ballard High School on Wednesday, March 4th. There is no charge for the test and all students are automatically registered. Students must check in from 8:00am-8:30am in the Commons. The test will start promptly at 8:45am and end at approximately 2:00pm. Students that arrive late will not be admitted and students cannot leave the testing environment until all students are dismissed.
