Seal of Biliteracy


High School Spanish students who have taken Spanish III or IV are eligible to take the Seal of Biliteracy exam each spring. As part of the exam, students took four tests reading, writing, speaking, and listening. In order to be eligible for the award, students had to receive an Intermediate Level 5 in each of the sections.

Students had to write 3 essays on 3 different topics for the writing section and the reading and listening sections consisted of several multiple-choice questions.

For the speaking section, students had to respond verbally to 3 different prompts and record their answers.

This distinguished award recognizes students who demonstrate an advanced level of academic proficiency in two or more languages, one of which is English. This accomplishment sets them apart from most high school graduates in the United States and sets them on the pathway to being a global citizen. Congratulations to these students!
