Signal Mountain Middle High School is proud to announce four seniors from the Class of 2023 have qualified as National Merit Semifinalists.  Abigail Dungan, Jack Gibby, Jeffery Lin, and Lydia Miller qualified as Juniors last year by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) or equivalent qualifying test. They are among the 16,000 highest scorers nationwide of the 1.6 million students who took the test, which evaluates critical reading, math, and writing skills. These academically talented students will have the opportunity to continue in the competition to become a National Merit Finalist for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $28 million that will be offered next spring. Of the 16,000 Semifinalists, over 95% are expected to obtain Finalist standing and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit scholarship. 

In the last ten years, Signal Mountain Middle High has honored 24 National Merit Scholars, two Semi-Finalists, and 27 Commended Scholars. SMMHS is proud of the hard work, time, and effort that these students have dedicated to their education. We are also proud of the investment that our staff, parents, and community have made in our school in support of our students in achieving this level of excellence.
