The aim of this work is to investigate the relationship between hope, test anxiety and school success with fi fth graders. The research comprised 167 students 83 girls and 94 boys attending the fi fth grade of two primary schools in the town of Velika Gorica. Two instruments were used: the children’s hope scale Snyder et al., 1997 and the children’s fear of school- test anxiety questionnaire IDSOŠ Arambašić & Krizmanić, 1986. Results have shown no difference in the level of hope and fear of school between boys and girls. However, girls had a better overall grade point average as well as math and Croatian language grades. Gender was a signifi cant predictor of all three variables of school success. With a controlled gender variable, hope was a signifi cant predictor of the math and Croatian language grades, with the contribution of hope showing to be more signifi cant in math grades. Test anxiety, combined with hope, was not a signifi cant predictor of any criterion of school success. The results of the research indicate that prevention programs for children and youth in Croatian schools could include hope development programs.
