The National Merit Scholarship program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the National Merit program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Eight Walt Whitman students have met the stringent requirements of the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test and as high-performers have shown outstanding academic potential. Selected from approximately 1.5 million program entrants, each of these students is among the 50,000 highest-scoring participants across the nation.

Congratulations to the following Walt Whitman juniors: Tiffany Chen, Joshua L. Joseph, Sarah Kim, Graham N. Lunt, Aisha Majid, Kentaro Matsushima, Joseph N. Van Gostein, and Rachel Vaughan.
