Twenty-one seniors from six Frisco ISD high schools have been honored in the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program.
Every year, the program recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT. The designation is an academic honor that can be included on college applications and is used by colleges to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.
Students are eligible to apply for recognition during their junior year if they are at least one-quarter or more Hispanic or Latino, achieve the minimum required PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score (this qualifying level may vary by state, region and territory each year) and earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.
Congratulations to the Frisco ISD students who have been honored through this program:
