    "Nine-Year-Old Indian-American, Preesha Chakraborty, Shines as One of the World's Brightest Students"

    Preesha Chakraborty, a remarkable nine-year-old Indian-American student from Warm Spring Elementary school in Fremont, California, has achieved recognition as one of the “world’s brightest” students. The prestigious acknowledgment comes from the Johns Hopkins Centre for Talented Youth (JH-CTY), which assessed over 16,000 students across 90 countries based on above-grade-level tests.

    Preesha’s exceptional performance in the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), American College Testing (ACT), School and College Ability Test, and similar assessments earned her a place in the distinguished list. Her achievement places her in the top 30% of students who qualify for High Honors or Grand Honors/SET, showcasing her remarkable academic prowess.

    Acing the verbal and quantitative sections, on par with the 99th percentile of advanced Grade 5 performances, Preesha earned the Grand Honors distinction. This accomplishment opens doors for her to participate in over 250 Johns Hopkins CTY’s Online and On-Campus Programs for advanced students in various subjects.

    Notably, Preesha is a lifetime member of the Mensa Foundation, the world’s oldest high-IQ society, where membership is granted to individuals scoring at the 98th percentile or higher on approved intelligence tests. Her journey into academic excellence began at age six when she secured the 99th percentile in the national-level Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT).

    Beyond her academic achievements, Preesha is passionate about traveling, hiking, and mixed martial arts. Her parents highlight her consistent passion for learning and exceptional academic abilities.

    Amy Shelton, Executive Director of the CTY, emphasizes that this recognition goes beyond a single test, celebrating students’ curiosity and capacity for learning. Shelton encourages these bright young minds to seek diverse experiences, connect with other scholars, think critically, and confidently pursue their goals.

    Established in 1979, the Johns Hopkins Centre for Talented Youth is a center for innovation dedicated to advancing gifted education through research on testing, programs, and support for advanced learners.
