Getting Ready for the SOLs
Every student at RHS will take the end-of-course English SOL tests during the junior year, so that means you should prepare ahead of time. In addition to the excellent instruction from your English teachers, you have the advantage of using the links here to practice for the tests. Some of these links will review grammar, usage, and mechanics; others will help you practice writing good essays.
