OK, so I'm going to brag a bit, but it's my blog and I can brag if I want!
We just got back M's SAT scores (from the Duke 7th grade talent search program). He got a 650 in Critical Reading! Wow!! That's at the 90th % for high school jr/sr and at the 99% for 7th grade students. All that reading pays off.
His other scores were also good, but not quite as remarkable. He scored 490 on math and 470 on writing (I think his grammar is better than this, but his essay scored really low). He had told us after the test that the reading was easy, the math hard, and his essay was bad. Evidently he was fairly correct.
We're quite proud of M. As D said, some of his students would kill for M's reading score. On the old 1600 scale (that us old fogey parents took the SAT under), he got a 1140. Combined scale of all 3 this adds up to 1610.
