High School Entrance Test Prep
The Tests: NWEA MAP, STAAR, ISEE, HSPT, CPS Selective Enrollment
The HSPT, ISEE, and other high school entrance exams are some of the most grueling tests, but your student shouldn’t fear them or feel like they must face the challenge alone. The test prep experience does not have to be stressful either; it can actually be enjoyable.
With our friendly and experienced guidance, any student can learn the content – not just the correct answers – in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere. As a bonus, efficiently prepping for these tests will help your student review and retain the information they’ve learned throughout their entire school careers, helping them prepare for a successful transition to high school.

The Results: 291/300 on CPS Selective Enrollment exam
Aaron*, an eighth-grade student, originally began tutoring with WorldWise Tutoring for homework help and his Learning Difficulties, ADHD and Executive Functioning. Once Aaron’s grades were raised, the focus of his tutoring turned to preparation for the high school placement exams. Aaron scored in the top 10 percentile on the NWAE Map and the HSPT, and attained a score of 291 (96 percentile) on the 8th grade CPS Selective Enrollment exam. He was thus accepted to his first-choice high school.
Here’s what Aaron’s parents had to say about WorldWise Tutoring:
“WorldWise Tutoring has helped my two sons (ages 16 and 14) with Executive Functioning skills, all academic subjects, and test preparation for the MAPP, high school entrance exams, and ACT prep for the past 3 years. With their help, both of my sons have been accepted to prestigious high schools (St. Ignatius and Whitney Young).” ~ Diane
