Senior Ajit V. has been named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist for 2018.

Students enter the program by taking the preliminary SAT/NMSQT in the fall of their junior year. Ajit has moved on from the 15,000 students into Finalist standing. The selection of some 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners from the group of 15,000 Finalists is now in progress. Congratulations Ajit, and best of luck!

Junior High students participated in the “Walk Out” Day on March 14th to express their support for the students in Parkland, Florida. The time the students spent together was a tremendous experience. Principal Gerhardt talked with them about being responsible, voicing their opinions and thoughts and the students shared their views and expressed their feelings. The overwhelming theme of the students who shared was the need for everyone to simply be nicer to each other, stop negative, hurtful actions, comments and posts on social media. And, to offer a kind word to fellow classmates, speak up when hurtful things are being said or done and genuinely care about each other. It was truly a great experience for all. We have amazing students.
