The Duke University Talent Identification Program is pleased to announce that its annual 4th-6th Grade Talent Search is under way. Each year, through the talent search, thousands of fourth, fifth and sixth grade students in the United States are identified based on standardized test scores, provided with academic enrichment benefits and invited to take an optional above-grade level EXPLORE test designed for eight grade students as a way to evaluate their academic abilities. Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization devoted to meeting the academic and social needs of gifted students. Our 4th–6th Grade Talent Search is the entry point for TIP benefits that can motivate gifted students to realize their full potential. The program is open only to fourth, fifth, or sixth grade students who achieve a qualifying score. Scott Elementary 4th and 5th grade students who qualified for the Duke TIP program are pictured below. Fourth Graders: Ariel Anderson, Rowan Garland, Kennedy Hayes, Latia Thomas and Dallas Hill. Fifth Graders: Aaliya Morrow, Zabdiel Tejeda, and Miracle Jones.
