Earlier this Spring, Savannah Country Day Upper School Spanish students participated in the National Spanish Exam, a test and contest that is given to Spanish students across the nation to assess their achievement and proficiency in Spanish.
This year, in addition to numerous high achievers nationally, 19 Savannah County Day Students were recognized and rewarded by the Georgia chapter of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese for earning one of the top six scores in this state for their level. Together they earned $675.00 in prize money!
