Middle School students honored for high SAT scores

Several John Glenn Middle School seventh- and eighth-graders were recently honored by The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) for their exceptional performance on the College Board’s SAT test. Victoria Albert, Eleni Drivas, Ruth Hanna, James Kuo, Annika Nosal, Allegra Scharff, and Pamela Weidman earned a High Honors award for achieving an exceptionally high score (at least 550 for seventh-graders and 600 for eighth-graders) on at least one component of the SAT. In addition, Ruth Hanna received a special award for having the highest Critical Reading score of all the Massachusetts seventh-graders who took the SAT.

SAT tests are typically taken for college admissions by high school sophomores and juniors. The middle schoolers participated in the test through CTY’s 2008 Talent Search. Since 1979, CTY has sought the most academically able elementary and middle school students and encouraged their enrollment in the annual Talent Search from September through November. Students then test in December or January. Eligible students can participate in CTY’s summer programs, distance education courses, and other activities designed to enrich the educational experience of these gifted children.
