A+ Test Prep helps
parents, kids understand standardized tests

Sheba Lowe Brown has a message to high school students and their parents: Read, take challenging courses and don’t leave standardized test preparation until the very last moment.

The mom of four in Durham is a former long-time high school teacher turned test prep guru. She is owner of A+ Test Prep and Academic Services. Brown and her instructors travel the Triangle and state to work with high school students getting ready for the tests or to talk with parents of kids who will be taking the SAT and ACT.

“When a student says ‘I’m not a good test taker,'” said Brown, “what that says is ‘I’m not prepared.'”
