MOUNT VERNON — Spanish teachers at Mount Vernon High School are proud of their students performance on the 2017 National Spanish Exam, especially of Olivia Matulich who earned a gold medal on the Spanish III test.

The mission of the National Spanish Examination is to recognize student achievement and to promote language proficiency in the study of Spanish. It is used to recognize achievement in the study of the Spanish language by students who are learning Spanish as a second language, to promote proficiency in interpretive communication in the Spanish language, to assess the national standards as they pertain to learning Spanish, and to stimulate further interest in the teaching and learning of Spanish.
