The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The ACT has up to 5 components: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and an optional Writing Test. The ACT® college readiness assessment is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students’ academic readiness for college.

The ACT is the capstone of our College and Career Readiness System. The test uses the same score scale as ACT Explore/ACT Plan and ACT Aspire, making the system an effective tool to monitor academic progress and student growth.

General Test-Taking Strategies for the ACT
The ACT contains multiple-choice tests in four areas: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. Each of these tests contains questions that offer either four or five answer choices from which you are to choose the correct, or best, answer. The following suggestions apply to all four tests: Pace yourself. Read the directions for each test carefully. Read each question carefully. Answer the easy questions first. 

Here are some helpful ACT Resources for students and families to better prepare and learn about the ACT.

All Juniors in the state of Missouri will take the ACT on April 28 as part of the Missouri Assessment Program.  The score earned will be able to be used for college applications and scholarships.

High school students whose attendance falls below 90% in one semester will receive a percentage deduction by course. If the student or parent feels that justifiable or extraordinary circumstances have contributed to not attaining the 90% threshold, the student and parent may appeal to the Attendance Review Committee. To view more detailed information about this click here!

Additional support will be available every Tuesday and Wednesday in the Media Center, until 4:30, for any student interested in working collaboratively with other students, receiving help from teachers, or working quietly. Transportation is available at 4:30 but passes must be obtained in the Main Office in order to ride NKCSD transportation home.

Become part of Oak Park’s Alumni Courtyard by purchasing a granite legacy paver. What was previously known as the Main Courtyard is being renovated and updated to recognize our Alumni, their families, and staff members.  Pavers can be purchased to recognize the families, influential teachers, previous classes, or other members of the OP Family you would like to acknowledge.  The funds will be used to continue to make improvements to Oak Park. Contact Mark Maus with any questions.

All 9th, 10th, and 11th graders students pictures were taken by Reed Portrait Group. Order forms are in the main office if you still would like to order pictures. Forms can be turned in at Oak Park or at Reed Portrait Group (7821 N Oak Trfy, Kansas City, MO).
