Thanks to superb standardized test results, six fourth-grade students and 10 fifth-grade students at Tennessee Christian Preparatory School are eligible for Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP).
To be eligible, students must perform at the 95th percentile or higher on one or more sections of any standardized test.
TCPS fourth-graders who are eligible this year are Jack Miller, Sammy Swanson, Alma Smith, Eric Brehen, Abigail Caines and Katie Finnell. Eligible fifth-graders are Cameron Douglas, Hannah Franklin, Josh Montez, Chase Pope, Jared Rucker, Lauren Stout, Trey Williams, Maggie Eslinger, Drew Smith and Grant Smith. These students performed at the 95th percentile or higher on an average of two sections of the Stanford Achievement Test.
Of the 16 eligible students, 13 have attended Tennessee Christian Preparatory School since kindergarten and the remaining three students have been enrolled at the school since the second grade.
