Preliminary PSAT Scores for MHS

Maricopa High School recently received results from the Preliminary SAT Test (PSAT) taken by students last school year. The PSAT tests students in English and mathematics resulting in a combined score. MHS had a record number of students taking the test – 117 sophomores and 128 juniors and their average scores were above the national average and the Arizona state average. The PSAT is a standardized test administered by the College Board and co-sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Approximately 3.5 million students take the PSAT each year (about half sophomores and half juniors) and scores determine eligibility for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Each year, approximately 8,000 juniors in the USA achieve scores in the top 99th percentile in their state and win National Merit Scholarships. It is not yet known if any MHS students in the Class of 2017 will receive a National Merit Scholarship.  Maricopa High School has had three National Merit Scholarship winners since 2012.
