The Wheatley School community is pleased to announce that twelve of our students have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program. These students are: Gabriel Besada, Jessie Cao, Arihant Jain, Haseeb Jangda, Samantha Leong, Julian Nathan, Jeffrey Poomkudy, Ashwin Reddy, Andrew Schloss, Christopher Shen, Jaclyn Stroud and Cindy Zhou.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2016 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 competition by taking the 2014Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
The outstanding performance of these dozen students speaks to their academic talents and educational commitment. We wish them the best as they continue to pursue their educational opportunities.
