Eleven seniors attending Saratoga Springs schools have been named “Commended” students in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Eight attend Saratoga High School, two attend the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs, and one goes to Saratoga Central Catholic High School.

The students took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholar Qualifying Tests, a widely used college entrance exam, during their junior year in high school.

Of the 1.5 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest Selection Index scores, which include a combination of their scores in critical reading, math, and writing skills, qualify for recognition as a commended, semi-finalist or finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.

The Saratoga Springs students were among 34,000 “Commended” students nationwide. They won’t go on in the competition, but their scores make them eligible to apply for certain college scholarships.

The Saratoga High students received a plaque from Principal Brett Miller and were recognized at a recent Board of Education meeting.
