Nine Mount Si High School students from the Class of 2018 are National Merit Scholars. They earned this distinction by earning top scores in the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which students across the nation take the fall of their junior year.
The students include Tyler Bateman, Liam Cole, Julia Crumb, Briana Dowling, Mallory Golic, Olivia Henning, Amanda Linder, Andy Pantoja and Nicholas Young.
Approximately 34,000 students of the top 50,000 highest scoring students are honored with Commended Student awards each year. This commendation recognizes students’ academic success and potential, demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the October 2016 PSAT qualifying test – which they took as juniors.
Additionally, Andy Pantoja earned a National Hispanic Scholar commendation for scoring among the top 2.5% of Hispanic and Latino students nationwide who took the PSAT.
