Several Students Earn National Recognition on Spanish Examinations

May 25, 2017

Congratulations to our students who attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2017 National Spanish Examinations (NSE). Sacred Heart students earned a total of seven gold, eighteen silver, and twelve bronze medals along with eighteen honorable mentions. Our students have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers Mary Beth Lombardi, Kathryn Nuñez, and Carmen Martinez Rivera, Ed.D.

The National Spanish Examinations are a motivated contest to recognized student achievement in the study of Spanish and to stimulate further interest in the teaching and learning of Spanish. The exams are online, standardized assessment tools for Grades 6 through 12, given voluntarily by more than 3800 teachers throughout the United States to measure proficiency and achievement of students who are studying Spanish as a second language. Attaining a medal or honorable mention on the NSE is very prestigious because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with more than 157,000 students participating.
