Seventh-Graders Honored in Duke TIP Program

April 18, 2019


Of the seven seventh-graders from Dripping Springs Middle School and Sycamore Springs Middle School who took either the SAT or ACT exam as part of the annual Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) Seventh-Grade Talent Search, several were recognized for their high level of achievement. Academically talented students across the United States who have scored in the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test – such as the STAAR assessments – are invited to participate in the Duke program.

Reagan King (DSMS) and Jasmine Zograib (SSMS) received state recognition, which means they earned scores equal to or better than half of the college-bound seniors who took the tests.

Six students – Sean Anderson (SSMS), Reagan King (DSMS), Luke Pool (DSMS), Alexander Seshan (SSMS), Jasmine Zogaib (SSMS) and Ramsey Zogaib (SSMS) – qualified for the Duke TIP Summer Studies Program.
