Two out of seven Highlands Latin School seniors were named National Merit Semi-Finalists this year.   Congratulations to Anna Getman and Cathleen Gendron on receiving one of the most prestigious honors for high school seniors.  Nationally, only the top 1% of the 1.5 million students taking the PSAT are recognized as National Merit Semi-Finalists each year, and only 75 students in Jefferson County scored well enough to be recognized.  (Nearly all students recognized as Semi-Finalists will be named Finalists in February)

In the last 5 years, 16% of Highlands Latin seniors have been recognized as National Merit Semi-Finalists and 23% have been recognized as either Commended or Semi-Finalist – the highest percentage of any school in the city. To see more about academic achievement at Highlands Latin, visit our SAT and ITBS page.
