18 MMS Students Receive State Honors For Duke TIP

Eighteen Midway Middle School students have been recognized by Duke University for their SAT and ACT scores that they earned last school year as seventh-graders.

Duke TIP students are selected nationwide each year based on their high-level performances on grade-level standardized test scores, and only those who score at or above the 95th percentile qualify for the honor. This year, eighteen students earned state honors, with three students also qualifying for Grand Recognition – earned by scoring approximately at or better than 90 percent of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT or the SAT.
