Class of 2019 Valedictorian and Salutatorian

The valedictorian and salutatorian pose together
Locust Valley High School is proud to announce that Alim Merchant and Joanna Yu have been named Class of 2019 Valedictorian and Salutatorian respectively. Both students have achieved at extraordinary levels and participate in various activities.
Alim has earned an impressive grade point average of 107.98. He is an IB Diploma candidate and an AP Scholar with Distinction. In addition to the five AP courses and 15 IB courses Alim has taken, he is a member of the Science Research program and is undertaking independent study in multivariable calculus because he advanced past the mathematics courses offered at the high school.
Earning a perfect score of 36 on the ACT performance test puts Alim in an elite category with one-tenth of 1 percent of all those who have taken the ACT. Alim began taking high school courses in middle school, earning a grade of 102 in Algebra, 108 in Living Environment and 98 in Spanish I all while still in seventh grade. He has earned perfect scores of 100 on the U.S. History and Government Regents, Global History Regents and Spanish Checkpoint B.
Active in the history and debate clubs, the ethics and quiz bowls, Odyssey of the Mind and the school’s theater productions, Alim is a well-rounded student who has a zest for learning in all areas.
Joanna has an equally impressive grade point average of 107.29 and is also an IB Diploma candidate and AP Scholar with Distinction. She has taken four AP courses and 13 IB courses, is a Biliteracy Diploma Candidate and has earned perfect scores of 100 on Spanish Checkpoint A and B.
Joanna also began taking high school courses in middle school, excelling in these advanced subjects. She earned grades above 100 in several accelerated subjects while in the eighth grade.
Joanna hones her writing skills as a member of the high school newspaper staff, an activity she enjoys and feels passionate about. She is the captain of the cross-country team and a member of Tri-M Honor Society, as well as a participant in clubs such as Odyssey of the Mind and the high school’s book club. Joanna is grateful for the opportunities she was afforded in school and has taken advantage of them to earn the success that has awarded her the status of salutatorian.
Congratulations to Alim and Joanna!

Three Seniors Named National Merit Commended Students

The commended students pose together
Locust Valley High School congratulates seniors Dean Creedon, Alim Merchant and Joanna Yu who were named National Merit Commended students by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. They are recognized for achieving exceptional scores on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) as juniors. From among the 1.6 million students across the nation taking the exam, approximately 34,000 were named commended students.

Board of Education Honors Academic Excellence

Locust Valley High School congratulates the accomplishments of current and past students who have distinguished themselves as International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement Scholars, some with honors and distinctions.

Presented with certificates at the Oct. 10 Board of Education meeting, the AP scholars were recognized for their dedication to academics. The achievement is an elite designation for resumes and college applications.

AP scholars have earned a score of three or higher on at least three AP exams. AP Scholars with Honors have earned at least a 3.25 on all of their AP exams and AP Scholars with Distinction have earned a score of three or higher on a minimum of four AP exams.

Students earning the Locust Valley IB Scholar designation have achieved a four or better on no fewer than three IB exams. The alumni were recognized based on exams scores that were released during the summer and therefore could not attend the meeting as many are at colleges and universities outside of the area.
