MRHS GT Research Parent/Student Info. Night  December 18 at 7pm Via Zoom

Monday, December 18, 2023 at 7:00PM via Zoom (see meeting info. below). We will discuss the 2024-25 GT Intern-Mentor and GT independent Research classes.

You do have to register for classes, but you also have to submit an application for the classes. Applications for both classes are available online at the MRHS GT website and on the school website

Among the colleges that some of our GT Research graduates have attended in recent years are: Princeton, MIT, Univ. of Penn., Duke Univ., Johns Hopkins, UMCP Honors Program, UVA, USAF Academy, Northwestern U., Michigan, Wake Forest, and Tufts U., to name a few. Would your child be interested in that type of a college?

Would your child be interested in a Mentor class where they would have the opportunity to do college level research?
Would it be helpful to your child to have a portfolio of original research and a recommendation from a professional to show to college admissions officers?
Would an Independent Research class where scholarly research is done in conjunction with an adviser in that field benefit your student?
Would it benefit your child to have a class where they choose their area of study so they can go beyond what a normal or even an AP class can offer them?
Does a Mentor class where your student would work on-site with a professional in their chosen field of study sound like something your student would enjoy?

If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, please attend the G/T Information Night via Zoom (see below for meeting info.) on December 18, 2023 at 7pm to learn more about the G/T Research program at our school.

If you have any questions regarding the evening’s events, please contact Mr. Eckert, the MRHS G/T Resource teacher, at
