East High’s Jade Nguyen, North High’s Isabelle Blevins, South High’s Grace Conrad and West High’s Alyssa Morris and Kennedy Onuoha will be honored at a luncheon in Columbia as members of the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals Missouri Scholars 100.


The selection is based primarily on a formula using the student’s grade point average and ACT or SAT score. Each student nominated had to first meet criteria of an “Academic Decathlon,” which included 10 “events” designed to assure the academic strength of the student. To meet the decathlon requirements, the student must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,600, be ranked in the upper 10 percent of the class, and have taken upper level courses in mathematics, science, English, and foreign language. The student must also have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen, and be involved in the school activity program.


Conrad, Onuoha and North High’s Haley Shepherd are National Merit Finalists. Fewer than 1 percent of the 1.6 million high school students  who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) last year, reach finalist status. They await word on scholarship awards.


And, for the first time, a Fort Zumwalt student recorded a perfect 36 on the ACT. Congratulations to North High’s Blevins and Shepherd! Each scored a 36 on the ACT. #FZPride
