    Anderson still has its own test but I am not sure about the cutoff
    Ok, thanks. My son has all 4's on his report card but state test scores are like 4.17 and 4.28. Great attendance. Not sure if he has a shot at Nest or not?

    Based on what I heard last year, the very few kids who got in had very high state test scores (perfect in one and 1 wrong in the other) and 4 in everything else. But I can't be sure. Anyone went to the open house yet and asked about cutoffs last year? Last year was the first year they didn't do their own assessment test and I'd assume the trend would be similar this year

    At the Open House they said there were kids who got in the 3's who have gotten in???! I'm not sure how that is possible..... What is your score if you get one wrong on the state test? 4.4?

    Hmm. Are those scoring 3 ICT or non-ICT kids? I think getting one wrong is 4.4x?

    No, not ICT kids. Maybe they were referring to kids who got in in previous years when there was a test?

Also, no idea about how many kids were accepted to NEST+m , but it is correct that they don't do their own test anymore. Now they use the report card and the state test scores from 4th grade.
    How has your son's experience been at Anderson? Just received an email for 7th grade admission. Totally unexpected. We are trying to figure out if it's worth changing schools for just 7th and 8th grade.
