  2. The tour and breakout sessions will last approximately 2 hours.  Seniors will be dismissed upon their return to SHS.  Please be cordial and considerate.  There has been a tremendous amount of time and attention devoted to this opportunity.  It is our hope that all students take advantage of this opportunity to learn, grow, and network during the experience.
  3. Students who are purposely absent from the IHI experience will not be allowed to attend PROM, and they will be excluded from athletic/club participation for a specified amount of time   

*Students with accommodations may have extended time to take their assigned assessment.  Those individuals will still have an extended lunch hour, and an adapted school day.    


1. Wake Up!

It’s a bad idea to roll out of bed and go straight to a 65-minute reading section. Instead, allow yourself plenty of time to get up and get ready before you have to leave. Once your alarm goes off, help yourself wake up completely by taking a shower. You want to be completely awake before you leave!

2. Get Your Heart Pumping

It’s a great idea to do a little exercise before you leave home on test day. Exercising gets your heart pumping, which in turn will send oxygen to your brain. The better shape your brain is in, the better you will do on the test! Consider doing 10-15 minutes of push-ups, jumping jacks, or any other exercise that will increase your heart rate.

3. Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Reach for a bowl of oatmeal, fruit, or granola instead of a doughnut or sugary cereal. You won’t be able to eat another meal for at least five hours, and you don’t want to be distracted by your stomach growling during the test.

4. Stick with Your Routine

If you normally drink coffee or tea before school, it’s okay to have your usual amount before the test. However, if it’s not a normal part of your routine, don’t try it out on test day. Caffeine can affect people differently, and you don’t want to risk feeling sick or jittery. The same goes for energy drinks and any kind of medicine.
