2017 National Merit Scholarship Program Recognition

April 27, 2017 Posted in: Academics Tags: ,

About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test. Two students in our senior class are among 34,000 Commended Students Nationwide who have shown exceptional Academic promise. Congratulations to Joshua Foldes and Haley Hendrikse for this commendation!

The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. There are approximately 16,000 Semi-finalists. Of those 16,000 semi-finalists around 15,000 move onto the Finalist Scholarship competition. We are excited to share that Collin Renae has moved on to the Finalist competition. Congratulations to Collin for this accomplishment!

This fall, Juniors who took the 2016 PSAT also competed in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Program. Of those students who took the test nationally, we have a student who scored in the top 2.5% of all Hispanic and Latino test takers in the region and is invited to participate in the National Hispanic Recognition Program. Congratulations to Alexander Shyne for this accomplishment.
