Jayda Stone qualifies for Duke Gifted Program

(Franklin, GA) — Jayda Stone, a fifth-grade student at Heard County Elementary School, has been invited to join the Duke University Talent Identification Program’s prestigious 4th–6th Grade Talent Search.

Each year, a select group of academically talented students in the United States are identified as academically gifted based on their exceptional grade-level standardized test scores at or above the 95th percentile.

Those students are invited to participate in the 4th–6th Grade Talent Search and to take the optional PSAT 8/9, which is designed for eighth and ninth graders.

Taking an above-grade-level test is an experience that allows these gifted fourth, fifth, and sixth graders to more accurately gauge their academic abilities and potential, as they need more advanced examinations than they find in their grade level.

Participants in the 4th–6th Grade Talent Search also receive a variety of support services and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively.
