National Spanish Examination Award Recipients
Yesterday during our Moving Up Mass, the St. Augustine Prep community had the opportunity to celebrate a handful of outstanding performances on the National Spanish Examination. The National Spanish Examinations are the most widely used tests of Spanish in the United States and serves as a motivational contest to recognize student achievements in the study of Spanish and to stimulate further interest in the teaching and learning of Spanish.
