AP Night

December 2022 Testing at WFHs

Parents, good evening. This is Mrs. Cramer, Assistant Principal at WFHS, calling with important information regarding testing this month which affects all students enrolled at WFHS.

Tomorrow, all twelfth grade students currently enrolled in a US Government class on the WFHS campus will take the Florida Civic Literacy Exam. Dual Enrollment students may opt to take the test with us, if their schedule permits. The test begins promptly at 8:25 a.m. This test is required of all high school students. A passing score will exempt them from this requirement in college, which is now required in order to receive a degree in the state of Florida, AND may serve as their US Government Semester Exam grade.

The second round of Progress Monitoring exams will be given on Wednesday, December 7th to freshmen and Thursday, December 8th to sophomores. These exams are also required and are used to determine academic gains for students in English, preparing them for the new FAST Exam offered at the end of the year, which is also a graduation requirement.

Students in grades 9-12 are working on Industry Certification exams this month as well. Those dates vary by academy and our students are doing a great job so far with over 200 certifications earned already this school year!

Finally, all students on the WFHS campus will take their semester exams, Thursday, December 15th – Tuesday, December 20th. An exam is required in each class and exams are not given early. In an attempt to provide the most optimal testing environment for all students, we do not authorize students to check out during a class period. Students late to school after an exam has begun will also not be permitted into class and will have to take a make-up exam.

A copy of our semester exam schedule is available on our website and has been shared in the student’s grade level Jag News pages. Students will be receiving a study guide for each of their classes to help them prepare for their exams.

Any student that receives testing accommodations should have already received a letter detailing the testing procedures. If you have any questions regarding your student’s upcoming tests, please reach out to your student’s counselor as soon as possible.


All of the mentioned tests this evening are required and are very important for your student’s academic success. Please assist us in encouraging your student to prepare in advance for the exams and to arrive at school prepared, on time, and with a fully charged chromebook each day. Students missing an exam will need to coordinate a time to make up the exam with their individual teachers.
