Thirty-eight SCVUSD35 middle school students, twelve from Calabasas and twenty-six from Coatimundi, qualified to participate in the Johns Hopkins summer program.
Fifty-five SCVUSD35 middle school students participated in the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Search. They did so by taking the high school Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) – a test designed to measure college and career readiness — along with high school seniors in December and March.
Of these, thirty-eight students earned scores that qualified them for the summer program: seventh graders earned 420 or higher in verbal or math; eighth graders earned 470 or higher in verbal or math.
“This confirms for me, what I have known for years, that our students can be as competitive as any other student on a national level,” said Assistant Superintendent Stephen Schadler.
