C. Leon King High School has received an “A” grade on the School Report Card, for the 2013-2014 school year!
Congratulations to Mr. Rowan, Mrs. Myers-Mitchell, Dr. Campbell and the rest of the faculty and administration on achieving an “A” two years in a row!!!
King High School had 20 National Merit Scholar Semifinalists this year, which was the most in Hillsborough County! Hillsborough High School had 11, and Robinson High School had 9. In all, 14 of the 27 public high schools in Hillsborough County were represented on the list. KHS also had 1 National Achievement finalist.
Hillsborough County Public Schools led the state in the number of National Merit Scholar Semifinalists this year and posted the district’s highest total ever, with 67 students earning the honor. Neighboring Pinellas County had 22, Pasco County had 7, and Polk County had 6.
National Merit Semifinalists represent less than one percent of the nation’s high school seniors. To be selected as a semifinalist, a student must have an outstanding academic record, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn an SAT score that confirms the student’s academic achievement. Roughly 1.4 million students across the nation vied for the honor of being among the nation’s most academically talented high school seniors.
Congratulations to all of the winners, we are very proud of you!
