“These seniors are being recognized for their demonstrated exemplary academic skills and abilities. The District shares in the tremendous pride their families, friends, and school have for their achievements.”Gerrita Postlewait, CCSD Superintendent

NMSC officials announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 62nd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Twenty-two (22) CCSD students were named 2017 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists.  These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring.

About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. The number of Semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

2017 National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July.

Wando High School offers more than 250 courses and encourages differentiated instruction. Our educational program is academically challenging and built on high expectations. We offer a variety of programs: Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, Honors, CTE, and College Preparatory. All of these programs are designed to meet the unique and individual needs and interests of each student. 

Student engagement is achieved by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experiences and then exploring new ideas and promoting authentic learning.
