TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) facilitates academic, athletic and fine arts competitions among private and parochial high schools. Many TAPPS academic competitions have parallels in UIL High School competitions (same annual word list for Spelling, same topic for Social Studies and Literary Criticism, etc). Thus, our products developed for UIL contests are perfect for schools, coaches and students preparing for TAPPS contests. Our Current Issues and Events, Ready Writing, Science, Spelling, Social Studies and Number Sense products are widely for TAPPS contest preparation. We've written invitational meet tests for years, and as of 2011, we write the official TAPPS District and State Tests for Literary Criticism, Current Issues & Events, Social Studies, and Ready Writing.
"I really appreciate the quality materials you have provided for TAPPS. The layout of the tests is great, and the reference material for the essay answers is extremely helpful. I certainly hope that Hexco is willing to provide these four tests for us again next year. Again, thank you for all you have done. It's a pleasure working with you."
