30 HSD 7th Graders Take Duke Talent ID exams

Recently, more than 30 Hazelwood School District seventh grade students took college entrance exams through the Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).

Out of the HSD students who were tested, 12 qualified for Duke’s prestigious Summer Studiesprograms that take place at Duke University and other U.S. colleges and universities. In addition, seven of these students also received state-level recognition.

These young academically gifted students were invited to take the American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) as part of Duke TIP’s Seventh Grade Talent Search, by which participants sat alongside college-bound eleventh and twelfth grade students to measure their academic capability. The seventh graders, who scored at or above the 95thpercentile on a grade-level achievement test, often achieve scores rivaling or surpassing those of older fellow testers.
