2019 Spanish Exam Results
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 10:30 AM

From Ms. Cambambia:I want to share and celebrate the impressive results of the 2019 Advanced Placement (AP) Spanish Language & Culture Exam as well as the Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency (AAPPL) Spanish Exam with you!

I am pleased to say that we broke more records this year! First new record: 39 total test were passed! (Previously it was 36.) Second new record: 4 students received the highest score possible on the AP Spanish Exam, with 5/5! (Previously we had only 2 students who earned the score since we began giving the exam in 2015, so it's a major success to have 4 in one year!)
