Well, it’s that time of year again as thousands of kids take the Stanford-Binet test for admissions into the Hunter Elementary School Program which is by far the most competitive kindergarten in the world! Year after year over 3,000 4-year-olds take the Stanford-Binet test to get a qualifying score for a chance to attend the second round where the children are observed in a classroom setting. Out of the 3,000 kids that take the test only 50 (25 boys, 25 girls) will be allowed to enter the pearly gates of Hunter College Elementary Gifted Program the following school year. Hunter does make it loud and clear on their web site that a parent should not “prep” their child for the test. Although based upon what they indicate it sounds like reading to your child could be misconstrued as test prep for the Stanford-Binet test. Here are a few sample questions for the test and these are the types of questions a child might encounter on the test. These are brought to us by the folks at Testing Mom where you get tons of practice materials for Hunter, private school admissions and NYC gifted and talented program. Over the past few years the Hunter round 2 cut-off score for the Stanford Binet has ranged from 143 up to 149! If your child gets 142 or below you might was well count them out of getting an invite to the A-list second round. Harsh, yes….reality check folks.
Cindy, Daryl and Anne were crossing guards at the school. Each child was given 2 whistles they could use for the job. Choose the box that shows how many whistles in total were given to the 3 children. 4
Do you see the children in the first box? Each child is the captain of his or her team. If 30 children in total play on teams, which box shows the number of children each team captain gets to pick for his or her team? 4
