In my experience they are aware of ratings vs rankings because they usually hit with a variety of club pros... who have ratings. Most larger clubs have a wider variety of pros rated from 4.0s to 5.5s and higher... so in conversation I'm sure the juniors know the difference between their rankings and an adults rating.

Let alone if they've played in tournaments with adults the juniors have to play in the Open division (at least in this area), and some of the adults are playing up into the Open draw if there isn't a draw for their rank because of not enough participants (not enough 4.5's to fill a draw, they get bumped up into the next highest draw). So I think most of the kids know.
