8th Grade Explore Test
Attention 8th Grade Parents and Students,
On October 24th, our 8th grade students will be taking their high school placement test. The Explore test is one piece of data that is used to place students in their 9th grade classes, as well as information from their current teachers and other important data such as grades, performance on MAP and ISAT. Information regarding this test will be mailed home, and we will also share information with students regarding the day of the test.
For optimal performance, we ask that students get a good night's sleep the night before the test, eat a healthy breakfast, come prepared to the test with pencils and a calculator, and try their best on the test. We will be taking the test at McHenry West High School in the morning on October 24th, and our staff will be accompanying students to ensure they receive all necessary accommodations.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teachers or Mrs. Huff.
Best of luck to our 8th graders!
