Congratulations! (¡Felicidades!) to Legacy Spanish students attaining national recognition for excellent performance on the 2019 National Spanish Examination (NSE).
The National Spanish Exam is a voluntary assessment; only top students choose to take the challenging test. Therefore, the placement medals were earned in competition between the elite Spanish students in the United States!
The percentile scores below are not simply a number of questions correct, rather they are a ranking within all testers. Among that elite group, our 14 Legacy testers garnered these medals:
Silver medal – 85-95%
Miranda Demars, Level 2 (90%)
Bronze medals – 75-84%
Lindsay Thomas, Level 2 (83%)
Gabriella Weissman, Level 1 (80%)
Honorable Mention – 50-74%
Alex Domeyer, Level 2
Trenton Harrison, Level 2
Tim Price, Level 2
Ellie Schiebout, Level 2
Profe Oberg says to all testing students – “You dared greatly! You stepped into the arena! And YOU learned, you achieved, and I AM more than proud of you!”
Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the NSE is very prestigious because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with 146,000 students participating in 2019.
“It is my privilege to teach students who love a challenge and to watch our students compete and excel among the elites of Spanish!” Profe Oberg
