ARLINGTON - Well-respected as a world leader in gifted education, the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth conducts national and international searches to identify and assess outstanding academic talent. Twenty-four Arlington Middle School/Arlington Accelerated Academy students were named Johns Hopkins Scholars.
These students scored in the 95th percentile or higher on the Stanford Achievement Test or scored at the "Proficient with Distinction" level on the NECAP. These students are now eligible for CTY summer programs and Advanced Placement education programs.
In recognition of their accomplishment, Arlington Principal Kerry Csizmesia presented each student-scholar with a Johns Hopkins insignia sweatshirt.
