Excelling at the National Level in Latin

All Latin students in 7th and 8th grade took the National Latin Exam on Tuesday, March 10, 2020.  According to the NLE syllabus, the exam provides « an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of Latin and the Roman world on a test consisting of 40 multiple-choice questions. The exam focuses on the student’s ability to read and comprehend Latin as outlined in the American Classical League’s Standards for Classical Languages. » Learn more about the exam here.
Upon receiving the results back this week, Middle School Latin Teacher Natalie Griffin exclaimed, « I am very proud of all of my students! » Congratulations, Latin students!
