Today’s James Logan announced 3 students had become National Merit Scholarship Finalists. That’s pretty impressive. The National Merit Scholarship Program, which started in 1955, attracts approximately 1.4 million entrants each year; fewer than 16,000 become finalists.
Then I wanted to know how many finalist Mission San Jose got. The answer is 64 this year.
Fremont Christian received 1 winner.
I’ll try to get stats on student populations so we can derive some meaning from this.
