    superior performer & star performer

    Are 'superior performer' and 'star performer' used only for a company employee?
    Can't we use them for a good student? Thank you in advance.

    She performs well; she "does the job" well. Studying, which is what students do, isn't considered a job though, so 'performer' wouldn't work. But sports would: she's our star performer (as in talented).

    Casiopea, thank you.
    Is 'superior students' OK? Or 'star students' acceptable?

    Hello peppy_man,

    One can say both "superior students" and "star students" or one can even substitute the word "pupil" for "student". Another possibility is "star achiever".

    Out of curiosity, of what level(s) of education are we speaking, elementary, middle or high school? I'm not certain that we'd use the same terminology when referencing college level students.

    I'm talking about elementary, middle or high school students, but if there are some words for good college students, I'm curious.
