Some Arroyo Grande High School students are among the best in the nation.
Four were named National Merit Semi-Finalists and three are advancing to the finals.
The finalists are Kyle Berlin, Joanne Crandall and Joseph Simonian.
The semi-finalist is Janelle Dunn.
High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
"Yes, I've been studying hard," said AGHS senior Kyle Berlin. "In the future, I want to do something that hopefully I enjoy doing and hopefully will give back to the planet."
About 1.5 million students enter every year.
The group of finalists represents less than 1% of U.S. high school graduating seniors.
