What does it mean to be a Keystone course?

The Keystone exams replaced the PSSA exams as the Pennsylvania standardized test for high school students. The tests are aligned with the PA Core state standards. Students will take the Literature Keystone exam in 10th grade. Our class work and skill work will be designed to prepare students for this high-stakes test.
