Charles Schott (pictured above, center) has been selected as an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri’s top academic students in the graduating Class of 2016.
Missouri Scholars 100 is a program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals. Schools across Missouri were invited to nominate candidates for this statewide recognition. The selection is based primarily on a formula using the student’s grade point average andACT or SAT score. Each student nominated had to 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 and 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 excellence attendance, be an exemplary school citizen and be involved in the school activity program.
“Students who are selected to this program have taken a rigorous course of study and have maintained the highest academic standards. The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals wants to celebrate the achievement and success of these students and their schools,” said Phil Lewis, Executive Director of the principals’ association.
