Congratulations to our National Merit Finalists!


  • Michelle Karpishin, Hillsdale High School
  • Victor Lee, Hillsdale High School

Competition for National Merit Scholarships is nationwide and rigorous. More than 1.5 million juniors from 22,000 high schools took the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in order to begin the process to vie for the 2016 awards.  This year, officials of the National Merit Scholarship program have announced that about 7,500 U.S. high school seniors have been named National Merit winners.




The GATE Parents Group has partnered with Mindful Schools to sponsor and bring their online courses, to SMUHSD for all parents, teachers and staff, free! - to you for the next year.  To learn more about mindfulness, the courses and how to sign up look here. 


Looking for more patience and less stress?  Summer is here and it might be a great time to learn a new skill MINDFULNESS.  Mindfulness is a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and environment.  Research finds that mindfulness decreases stress and anxiety, increases attention, improves interpersonal relationships, fosters compassion and strengthens emotional regulation.

Class of 2017 


Senior Portraits are scheduled for June 3rd & July 19th.  Below is the link to point them to for all the needed info.
