Advanced Placement Latin students recently participated in the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages exam called ALIRA. The exam ranks Latin proficiency, and out of 16 students in the class, 13 juniors placed in the top two rankings.
Cooper Grinspun, Jacob Rickels, and Will Schuessler earned the Advanced Rating, the highest possible exam score. This ranking means that the recipient understands main ideas and supporting details on familiar and new concrete topics from a variety of more complex texts.
Walker Burks, Doug Curtis, Hart Gowen, Jack Jabbour, Cullen Lonergan, Fawwaz Omer, Samy Paul, Ryan Peng, Max Shackelford, and Edwin Shy, earned an Intermediate 5 Rating, the next-highest score possible.
