Warning: Proud mamma bragging about her super smart kid!
My son (and 22 of his classmates) was given an award for qualifying as a Duke Scholar at school yesterday. This means that his scores on his last standard achievement test (which he took back in April) were in the top 5% in the nation.
He is the 3rd boy from the left in the back row. He's in the 7th grade.
I'm so proud of him!!! Plus, he gets to take the SAT's in January which will be a great experience for him. It will give him an idea of what to expect when he takes them for real.
