Are you referring to *intelligence* when you say "IQ"?

"IQ tests" tend to test the ability to grasp certain types of abstract 
problems. That is a specific type of intelligence. There are many kinds 
of intelligence.

In my hypothetical scenario the children are all clearly representative 
examples of their race.

I realize there is no such environment. The purpose of a thought 
experiment is to get to the root of a problem by isolating and 
eliminating variables. I realize that in your mind all roads lead to 
your particular brand of conservative thinking, that's the kind of 
pre-existing bias I am trying to eliminate.
