The HSPT (High School Placement Test) is administered to eighth graders before entering into High School. Many private and specialized high schools utilize this evaluative measure for discerning admission of incoming freshmen. Applicants from various middle schools hope that their scores will grant them acceptance into prestigious high schools around the nation.
The HPST is broken up in two sections that are designed to evaluate a student’s cognitive and basic skills. These two skills are further parceled into five different segments of multiple-choice questions. The cognitive skills section includes verbal and quantitative questions. The basic skills section includes topics such as reading, mathematics, and language.
The HPST tutors at Manhattan Elite Prep utilize a variety of different teaching methodologies and study techniques to best prepare every eighth grader to receive the highest possible score. Our tutors are well versed in each and every section of the exam and have created study guides and practice sets to provide each student with ample practice before the test date. The HPST tutors at Manhattan Elite Prep will tailor a specific study program to meet the needs of each individual student that will maximize their progress, compliment each student’s own personal learning style and focus on areas of needed improvement. By breaking down the test into easily manageable sections and segments, our HPST tutors can work at the pace of any student to ensure that he or she reaches his or her highest score potential.
