The ASVAB is a battery of

and strengths as well as a personality quiz to determine where they might want to take their future.
A workshop is provided for everyone who takes the test to show you
how to use your score for this purpose, and to explain how one might
use their score for military purposes. It does not guarantee entry to the Military. This test is free and requires
both parent and student signatures. For more information, contact Ms. Putnam in the Career

final for each class they teach that accounts toward a students academic
credits. Each student is required to take a final at the end of each
quarter that shows their ability to pass the class. If a student
fails the final, or does not take the final, they may be in danger
of failing that class. A finals schedule can be obtained from
the front office on Argonaut High School's campus, or from your homeroom
