Seventh Grader Earns Silver On National Latin Exam
Seventh grader Haadeya Salman from Birchwood School earned a Silver Award (Maxima Cum Laude) for her score on the 2022 National Latin Exam. Every year Latin students are invited to take the exam that tests students on their knowledge of Latin grammar and vocabulary as well as aspects of Roman culture such as history, architecture, and clothing. Salman and her classmates were coached by Catherine Haskins who said "I am very proud of my students and most especially of the effort they invested in preparing for the exam, since it results in a good deal of extra learning during the winter months.”
Abigail McNaughton is an alumni of Birchwood School of Hawken and excited to be reporting on the successes of current students.
