  1. Among Dane County’s public and private high schools, the percentage of enrolled 11th graders (2005-06) who qualified as National Merit Semi-Finalists is:
    66.7% St Ambrose (2 out of 3)
    6.6% West
    5.0% Memorial
    2.5% Edgewood
    1.7% Country Day
    1.4% Verona
    1.3% Middleton
    1.2% Mt Horeb
    0.8% Monona Grove
    0.7% East
    0.5% La Follette
    0.4% Waunakee
    0.3% Oregon
    0.3% Sun Prairie
    (Note: the enrollment denominator of HS juniors does not include students who dropped out before 11th grade or didn’t accumulate enough credits to earn promotion to 11th grade.)

  2. Last year Madison Country Day School had six 11th grade students and one was a National Merit Semi-Finalist, so their percent should be 16.7 rather than 1.67 as posted.
