Yorba Linda High School is very proud to announce their seniors who have been recognized as National Merit Scholars!
Each year, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) names 16,000 Semifinalists nationwide representing the top half percent of the 1.6 million program entrants who take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualify Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Representing less than one percent of each state’s high school seniors, National Merit Semifinalists are the highest-scoring program entrants. Commended Students placed in the top five percent.
National Hispanic Recognition Program recognizes the top 2.5% among Hispanic and Latino PSAT/NMSQT test takers in the nation. In addition to a qualifying PSAT score, students must earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.
Here are the Mustangs who qualified this year:
