Each quarter, one student per grade is selected as Student of the Quarter. Students of the Quarter are nominated by their teachers based on criteria of academic performance, character, behavior, effort, social relationships, and attendance. To celebrate their honor, students receive a certificate of achievement, and a gift certificate for a meal at a restaurant.
