Congratulations to our finalists, Ms. Jackson and Ms. Kaiser. We will have a Teacher of the Year celebration in conjunction with American Education Week later this fall.
NHS National Merit Semifinalists
Congratulations to our Norcross High School National Merit Semifinalists: Cooper Allen, Aidan Dealy, Elliott Januzelli, Martin Lachev, Abby Lewis, Eric Van Ness.
Semifinalists for the National Merit Scholarship Program were determined by students' scores on the 2019 Preliminary SAT. About 1.5 million high school juniors took the PSAT--and fewer than one percent of high school seniors qualified to be semifinalists.
To become a Finalist, the Semifinalist and the high school must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the Semifinalist's academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student's earlier performance on the qualifying test.
National Merit Scholarship winners of 2021 will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July.

Norcross High School Principal
