Last year, candidates comprised 20% of the Senior Class. This year, candidates for the Presidential Scholar Award comprised 23% of the Senior Class. National Merit Scholars are selected from the top PSAT scores on the island. Over the past five years, Saint John's School has had 13 National Merit Scholars.
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the highest honors bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 mathematics and science (including computer science) teaching. Only 108 awards are given each year, recognizing those teachers who develop and implement a high-quality instructional program that is informed by content knowledge and enhances student learning. Saint John's School is fortunate to have four of its faculty members chosen throughout its years. Three of these awardees are currently part of the teaching staff.
