More than 1.5 million juniors in over 22,000 high schools entered the 2011 National Merit Program by taking the 2009 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
The pool of semifinalists includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.
In New Mexico, Los Alamos High School, with
13 students, and Albuquerque’s La Cueva High, with 11 students, lead the list of public high schools this year.
A total of 58 public school students, 42 private school students and one home-school student were named semifinalists.
The academically talented high school seniors will continue in the competition for about 8,400 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than
