Several Spanish students from Green Hedges School in Vienna attained national recognition for excellent performance in the 2012 National Spanish Examinations. Students from Green Hedges School earned one gold and two silver medals.
"Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious," said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, "because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with 143,641 students participating in 2012."
Students from Green Hedges School have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teacher, Dr. Marzolino.
The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 7 and 8, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
