We are proud to announce that 16 of our high school students have been recognized as National Merit Semifinalists this year! These students qualified based on their performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) taken in their junior year!

These students include: Michael Burke, Jeffrey Wang, Maya Mutic, Noah DiAntonio, Hans Chan, Alexandra (Sasha) Rice, Kevin Zhang, Patrick Naughton, Donna LaMore, Julia Biest, Stephanie Zhong, Gloria Zhou, Amanda Steiner, Anna Cramblitt and Alexander Tan. Michael Muzinich also qualified, though he no longer attends Ladue Schools.

About only 20 percent of high school students take the SAT. These students are among a small group of LHWHS seniors who have achieved this accomplishment in the past 20 years.
