DONALDSONVILLE – The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) is recognized as a leader in identifying and serving the educational needs of academically gifted youth. Qualifying is commendable and an honor and on Oct. 9, Lowery Middle School announced that Joel Walker will represent the school as the 2015-2016 school year participant.  

     Seventh graders who have scored at the 95th percentile or above on a national grade-level achievement test are invited to participate in the program. These students take either the SAT or the ACT alongside the usual group of college-bound 11th and 12th graders, and many earn scores that rival or surpass those earned by the older students in the next seats.
