Alert: The Menifee County School District will be dismissing this afternoon on regular schedule. We will be running on Plan B dismissal, which means you may need to come out and pick your child up at the main road. Also any and all after school activities have been cancelled for this afternoon and evening.

Menifee County Elementary 8th graders will be taking the EXPLORE Test on September 20th.  I have included some information to help you understand it and how it can help your child.  I will be sending you results within 20 days of taking the test.  Please let me know if I can help you in any way.  Mr. Little

Why should my kid take EXPLORE?

EXPLORE helps students identify areas of academic strength and weakness in four areas important for success in college and the workplace—English, math, reading, and science. Since EXPLORE is a curriculum-based test, EXPLORE scores show the knowledge and skills that students are likely to have in each of these areas.

EXPLORE also includes a career planning component design to help students consider possible career options.


EXPLORE can provide your son/daughter with an early indicator of readiness for college, provide important information for building a high school course plan, and help him/her identify careers in which he/she might be interested.What's the test like?

EXPLORE includes four multiple-choice tests covering English, mathematics, reading, and science—the same subjects covered by the ACT test.
