While it is often rumored that schools do not look at the 4th grade scores, in actuality, specialized middle schools truly do look at these scores. These schools are very competitive, so when it comes to a student’s performance on the ELA/Math exams, every point counts.
Additionally, although these scores are not a major contributor for whether your child will be admitted to a specialized middle school, it is a subtle factor, which makes it all the more dangerous. Having a strong ELA/Math score can give your child a large competitive advantage over other applicants.
