Duke University Talent Identification Program Recognizes MISD Students

Jul 27, 2015 06:45PM, Published by Kevin, Categories: Today, Community Mansfield Isd




Almost two dozen Mansfield ISD seventh grade students from the 2014-15 school year have been recognized by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) for their high scores on the ACT or SAT college entrance exams.

Duke TIP's Seventh Grade Talent Search is the largest program of its kind in the nation and identifies academically talented seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exam as seventh graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities.

If a student earns State Recognition, it means he/she has scored at or above the national average of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT or the SAT.

Grand Recognition means the student scored at or above 90 percent of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT or the SAT—an honor only given to about three percent of all the participants in the talent search.

Congratulations to the following students for this great achievement:

Grand Recognition

Rebekah Ford, Danny Jones Middle School

Samantha Baker, T.A. Howard Middle School
