What an honor it is to announce that several students from the Lakes of Savannah community’s junior high school were recognized by the Duke University Talent Identification Program 7th Grade Talent Search!

Eight out of 48 Alvin ISD students who were recognized by Duke TIP attend Rodeo Palms Junior High. This program combs the nation to award talented students in the seventh grade who perform at a high level on the ACT or SAT. Recognition is based on a comparison between the scores of recent high school graduates and seventh grade students. To be recognized at the grand level, seventh grade students must score “at or above 90% of the recent high school graduates” on either standardized exams. At the state level, seventh grade students must score “at or above the national average of recent high school graduates” on either standardized examsl. Students who are recognized by Duke TIP will have access to “college preparatory tools, enrichment, and summer opportunities.” This national talent search was created to continue motivating students towards achieving their goals through a higher education. 

At the grand level, Kalyn Luong from Rodeo Palms Jr. High was recognized. Other Rodeo Palms Jr. High students who were recognized at the state level include Arianna January, Avah Patel, Ethan Judge, Kavya Vivekanand, Nikhil Varma, Shais Sharafi, Sheadon Lu.

The Lakes of Savannah community is amazed at all of the hard work Alvin ISD has been putting in. Great job on the ACT and SAT, Razorbacks!
