National Spanish Exam Winners



St. Thomas Aquinas consistently claims many medal-winners on the National Spanish Exam each year, but this year, we boast a particularly high number of winners!

Students in our Spanish classes earned a total of 28 Honorable Mentions, 8 Bronze medals, 4 Silver medals and 2 Gold medals on the annual National Spanish Exam. Achieving recognition on this exam is very prestigious because it is the largest of its kind in the United States with over 73,000 students participating in 2022.

Our students’ success is especially impressive because they are competing against students in states with much more exposure to Hispanic culture and language than New Hampshire!

Saints Pride!
