Congrats MO Scholars 100

Congratulations to seven Fort Zumwalt seniors for their outstanding academic accomplishments. East High’s Camille Dutt; North High’s Alan Meyer and Elyse Davis; South High’s Chavi Khanna and Meghana Sivabalan and West High’s Ava Baker and Pranav Palaniappan have been named to 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. 

Baker and Meyer have also been named National Merit Scholarship finalists. Khanna and Sivabalan were named National Merit Commended Scholars.
