The Epstein School is pleased to announce that 17 Epstein seventh graders scored high enough on their ACTs to receive State Level recognition and/or be eligible to participate in Duke University’s Center for Summer Studies or Academy for Summer Studies, and one qualified for Grand Level recognition.
Duke University’s Talent Search is the largest program of its kind in the nation, representing participation from 6,000 junior high and middle schools in the Duke TIP 16-state region and identifies academically talented seventh graders based on standardized test scores. The students who qualified and were recognized for the 2014 Duke Talent Identification Program are listed as follows:
Epstein seventh grader David Weinberg received Grand Level recognition.
Students who received State Level recognition included: Jacob Alayof, Julia Bardack, Isabel Berlin, Gabriela Goodman, Hannah Granot, Justin Kaplin, Gabrielle Lewis, Abigail Meyerowitz, Sydney Pargman, Hannah Pearl, Leo Sachs, Sophie Schneider, Matthew Sidewater, Daniel Stern, William Tovey and Carla Wohlberg.
“We are very proud of the extraordinary achievement of these students. This is a wonderful reflection of the exceptional quality of a bilingual education in conjunction with a blended learning environment at The Epstein School, as well as the commitment of our professional educators. The ACT test, more than the SAT, reflects the learning that goes on in the classroom and is a clear indicator that Epstein students are very well-prepared to enter the high schools and colleges of their choice,” stated Head of School Stan Beiner.
