  • Congratulations to JP's 27 Merit Scholars!

    On September 13th, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 62nd Annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Semifinalists are the highest scorers in each of the 50 states and represent less than one percent of each state’s high school seniors.  We are very proud to recognize 27 of our students in the field of academia:


    Each of these students will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $35 million this spring. Students who qualify as Semifinalists based on their performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT ®) are the only program participants who have an opportunity to advance to the Finalist level and compete for National Merit Scholarships. In order to be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.  About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar Title. Good luck Hawks!

Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scores of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Congratulations to these seniors!

  • Invitation To Join JP Stevens PTSO 

    Welcome to JP Stevens PTSO 2017-2018 Family!

    High school is a very important time in the lives of teenagers. Beyond the obvious physical changes, emotional and psychological needs of teenagers need to be addressed to ensure their holistic well being. Parenting teenagers in high school is a turning point in the relationship between parents and teenagers. PTSO is a forum for parents to get together to share their parenting successes, concerns and provide support and scope for discussion on matters related to dealing with their teenagers’ stress, anxiety and college preparedness. We run programs such as, Parent Counseling with the school counselors and Parent Mentoring with JPS Alumni parents to help parents.

    PTSO raises funds to support events for the students and parents. Funds raised are used to award scholarships to students & support Project Graduation which is the biggest event on the night of the graduation for outgoing seniors. PTSO also organizes other events such as Color Walk/Run and Art competition.

    The PTSO is a valuable asset and support to you as a JP Stevens student’s parent. JP Stevens PTSO extends beyond fundraising to provide a platform for ongoing parent collaboration, interaction with school counselors, opportunities for students’ networking with professionals, amongst several initiatives.

    Please sign-up for the PTSO membership and support the activities by volunteering your valuable time and inputs. The membership fees is $15/- per family.
