List of Nobel laureates by Secondary School affiliation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following is a list of Nobel Prize laureates by secondary school affiliation. To be listed, a high school must have at least one Nobel Prize laureate among its alumni.

(Note: this list is very incomplete, especially for the many high schools that have one alumnus or alumna who is a Nobel Prize winner.)
