Middle School Students Receive National Recognition for Spanish Examinations

Forty-eight eighth-grade students attained national recognition for their excellent performance on the 2018 National Spanish Examinations. The students who took the exams in their Spanish 1B class earned a total of one gold, three silver and eight bronze medals, along with 20 honorable mentions.

“Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 150,000 students participating in 2018,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams.

This is the fifth year students from ECMS have participated in the exams and were taught by Middle School Spanish Teacher Tara Martin. National Spanish Examinations are administered each year across the nation in grades six through 12 and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. Over 40,000 students took the Level 1 test this year.
