Talent Search - BESTS

The Belin-Blank Exceptional Student Talent Search (BESTS) is an academic talent search that shows you exactly what students in grades four through nine are ready to learn and also provides parents and educators with specific information about their academic needs.

Why should your students participate in BESTS?

Your students should participate in BESTS to have their talents discovered! Did you know the simple act of participating in the talent search has been demonstrated to have a positive effect on gifted students' learning?

All BESTS participants are recognized by Stetson University through scholarships. Testing is available at locations all around Florida.

To determine eligibility to participate in BESTS, please see the FCAT 2.0 Spring 2013 Scores at the 95th Percentile.

Registration for the 2014-2015 BESTS will open in August. All students who received the HATS/BESTS Talent Search letter may also register for Hatterdays.

  • EXPLORE: grades four through six
  • ACT: grades seven through nine
