“Earning the recognition of National Merit Scholar is a prestigious honor that only goes to a tiny fraction of students across the country.” said JP Schools Superintendent Dr. James Gray. “This is a major accomplishment for these students, their families, and our educators. I look forward to seeing more JP Schools students named as the competition continues throughout the summer.”
