Latin students at the Upper & Middle Schools took the National Latin Exam in early March. They were joined by over 100,000 students from all over the US and the world. There are separate exams for different levels of Latin, and students in each level are awarded medals (gold and silver) for high achievement and ribbons and certificates at the middle school level. Twenty-eight upper school students and twenty-six middle school students were recognized with some kind of award. At the Upper School seven students received Gold Medals and eight received Silver Medals, the two highest awards on the exam. In addition, two 7th grade students achieved a perfect score on the Introductory Latin exam. Optime factum, discipuli!
