MMS StudentsNine Mason Middle School students scored in the ninety-ninth percentile during the 2018 National Spanish Exam.

These nine MMS students include Betsy Areddy, Kunal Arora, Neha Gunda, Alexandra Joseph, William Lee, Nicole Mater, Luis Roho, Nikith Vangala, and Abigail Williams. Six of ​these students, in addition to being in the 99th national percentile, also placed in the top three places for the Ohio Buckeye Region​. This includes Joseph, Rojo, Guna, Lee, Mater and Arora.​​

​"This was a pilot year ​and each Spanish I teacher at MMS submitted the names of 15-20 students who agreed to take the test this year​," shared MMS Spanish teacher and Spanish Club Co-Advisor Heidi Morrissey. "​The exam is broken down into two parts: performance and proficiency.​"​

​Fellow MMS Spanish teacher ​Lauren​ Richardson and Morrissey met with these​ selected​ students several times ​to help prepare them ​in the weeks leading up to the test administration dates ​on ​March 20​ and ​21​.

"We are absolutely thrilled with their performance and would like to discuss the possibility of honoring the top performers at the district level​!" added Morrissey.

Sixty-five MMS students took the Level 1 National Spanish Exam, and 27 of those students ​received a gold medal, 21 received a silver, 11 received a bronze, and six received an honorable mention.

"These kids worked incredibly hard to achieve these results and deserve to be recognized for being some of the highest performers in the nation​." added Morrissey. "​Over 150,000 Spanish students took the National Spanish Exam this year and our students represented the high standards and high performance levels that Mason is known for in other subject areas.​"​
