Abstract
The purpose of this study was to see if science high school has

effects on improving student's science achievement. The research

question was from recent doubt about effectiveness of Korean education

on science talented youth. To answer the research question, science

achievement scores of general and science high school students were

compared under the control of variables both at student and at school

level. HLM(Hierarchical Linear Modeling) was employed for analysis.

The results showed that students in science high schools showed higher

numbers than those in general high schools in both raw scores and

scores after consideration of controlling variables. Interests in science

positively predicted achievement scores regardless of school type. The

number of mother's schooling years and SES scores at student-level,

and the school mean SES and school location at school-level were the

significant variables that predicted achievement scores.
