    Quinlan Keys: Top 3% in Johns Hopkins' Gifted Program

    Quinlan getting his award.  He was in the top 3% globally,  out of 32,000 kids who tested last year. "Johns  Hopkins has a gifted program for youth called Center for Talented Youth.  They perform a talent search to find gifted kids and offer them online classes, summer camps and day/weekend classes, around the world.  To qualify,  students have to pass one of the two tests they offer.  These tests are above grade level and are offered to kids 2nd-12th grades.  They had over 38,000 kids (all ages and from all over the world) test this past school year.  Quinlan went to a ProMetric Testing Center in June and took their Scholastic and College Ability Test.  Since he just completed 6th grade, he was tested at the 9th grade level.  He scored High Honors, which is the top 3%.  There were over 300 students being honored yesterday (all in the top 3%), from 30 states, Canada, China and other countries. 

    Congratulations Quinlan! Harpers Ferry Middle is proud of your accomplishment!
