Félicitations! Gratulationes! Felicitaciones! Middle and high school students received honors based on their performance on a 2021 national language exam. Every student in grade 7 and above chooses a language (French, Latin, Mandarin, or Spanish) to study, and each April, our students participate in the national French, Latin, and Spanish exams, which are taken by students across the country. We are thrilled to see our students thrive in learning various languages.

Today, we recognize all our students below who received honors.
