Nearly 170 Parker Upper School students recently took the 2018 National Spanish Examination. Overall, 114 out of 169 attained national recognition for excellent performance earning them gold, silver, bronze, and honorable mention recognition for their test results.

“Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 157,000 students participating in 2017.”

The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6 through 12 and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
