A classmate (far right), teacher Alaine Davis and Head of School Mary Schneider admire National Merit Scholarship Finalist Anisha Chutani’s Certificate of Merit.

Senior Anisha Chutani has been named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist—Woodinville Montessori High School’s first Finalist. She received her Certificate of Merit at a special presentation to the high school and middle school on Feb. 16.

About 15,000 students nationwide have been named Finalists; from that group, half will be selected to receive National Merit Scholarships. Scholarship winners will be notified beginning in March.

Anisha has been a student at WMS since fourth grade, and we are very proud of her. To help celebrate, teacher Wendy Coulombe passed out cups of Anisha’s favorite Gummi Bears.

Two members of our first graduating class in June 2017 qualified as Commended Scholars based on their PSAT scores in the National Merit Scholarship rankings.

Wendy and Jill get the Gummi Bears ready.
