More than 117 Greenville High School students pushed themselves to achieve the high academic honor of being named a Superintendent Scholar this school year.
The 117 Superintendent Scholars are listed in the program here, of which 14 served on the Superintendent Student Advisory Council.
The Superintendent Scholar program emphasizes core courses that are taken by most students. Students in grades 9-10 must take at least five of the required courses each year, and only those courses count toward Superintendent Scholar recognition. Students in grades 11-12 must take at least four required courses each year, and only those courses count towards Superintendent Scholar. Students must make at least a 90 average or an 85 average with a minimum of 50 documented hours of community service during the first three grading periods of each school year. Scholar courses include English I, II, III and IV, Business English, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus AP, College Algebra, College Math Prep, Statistics, Integrated Physics & Chemistry (IPC), Biology, Chemistry, Advanced Animal Science, Physics, Anatomy & Physiology, World History, Economics, Government, U.S. History, Political Science, ISM, and Foreign Languages I, II, III, and IV.
