The qualifications for membership on the part of the student shall be: (a) worthy, moral and ethical character, (b) good mentality, (c) creditable achievement, and (d) commendable attitude.

The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) identifies gifted children and provides resources to nurture the development of these exceptionally bright youngsters. Giftedness is greatly misunderstood, and children with advanced intellectual and academic abilities continually perplex and challenge educators and parents. Duke TIP is committed to serving this unique group of students by providing services and programs beyond what is offered in the classroom. Often schools do not have the resources and staff to adequately provide for the academic challenges and social and emotional support that gifted children require. Through Duke TIP a whole range of activities and programs are accessible to parents and teachers to meet the individual needs of gifted children.
Duke TIP provides students with the opportunity to learn more about their abilities. In fourth and fifth grade, qualifying students may participate in Duke TIP's 4th/5th Grade Talent Search (formerly MAP) program and may take advantage of its optional above-level testing. Through Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search program, which focuses on the identification, recognition, and support of high-ability seventh graders, students take college entrance exams alongside high school students. A large number of 7th grade Talent Search participants earn scores that many high school seniors would envy.
Spelling Bee-Can you spell? Oh, I am sorry...s-p-e-l-l. The DCS Spelling Bee is open to students from grades 1-6. Students from each grade are awarded special recognition for their spelling accomplishments.
