Freedom HS news: Keystone exams and the French Revolution

Thursday, January 24, 2013 by The Press in School

The first semester has come to a close. All students have been cramming in bonus assignments and last-minute studying while the make-or-break moment of the semester draws upon them. Keystones have also been an extra burden for all the freshman, sophomores and juniors. The Keystone exams are end-of-course assessments designed to evaluate proficiency in various subjects. If students are not proficient in a certain subject, they will be required to take a specific class in order to improve their skills in that particular subject.
