Students Shine in National Spanish Exam

By June 21, 2023News

Congratulations once again to several of our 7th and 8th grade Spanish students for their impressive performance on the 2023 National Spanish Examinations.

Pennfield students attained national recognition, earning one gold, two silver, and nine bronze medals, along with one honorable mention. “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Lisa Greenman, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with nearly 85,000 students participating in 2023.”

Students from The Pennfield School have a long history of high achievement on these exams and are taught by Spanish teacher, Peter Dorrien Traisci.

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.
