The present study aimed to profile the performance of students in attention/executive functions and intelligence domains, compare the performance of children in public and private schools, and analyse the relation between sociodemographic varia­bles. Participants were 60 students aged 6 to 12 years old. Significant correlations were found between performance on the Wisc III and attention/executive functions domain (Nepsy batery) with the variables gender, school type, family income, parent education. Public school children had significantly lower performance in all tests assessed compared to private school children. The results was compared by type of school with the North American normative data of Nepsy and it was noticed that Brazilian public children had significantly lower result only in visual attention subtest, while students from private schools had better scores in visual and auditory attention, in planning tasks, selection and alternating stimuli.
