Congrats to the 2022 National Merit Semifinalists!

Congrats to the 2022 National Merit Semifinalists!

Students from EPHS are representing their school and district as National Merit Semifinalists in 2022. EPHS has 11 National Merit Semifinalist students, up from 9 last year. 

We are proud of their achievements and hope they continue onto the final round!

EPHS plans on honoring National AP Scholars and National Merit Scholars at a breakfast on November 12, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. 

Students interested in becoming a National Merit Scholar must take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) to quality for recognition into the program. They must also officially enter the program, which includes demonstrating a record of consistent high academic performance and a letter of recommendation from their principal. Of the 1.5 million students who apply, only 50,000 of those with the highest scores are selected - making it an extremely competitive process.
