MND student results include 15 Gold Medals/Summa Cum Laude certificates, 17 Silver Medals/Maxima Cum Laude certificates, 11 Magna Cum Laude certificates and 11 Cum Laude certificates.
Mrs. Karen Day, MND Principal commented, “MND’s Latin students are demonstrating their excellence both in our classroom and as compared to other Latin students across our nation. This is no surprise to me! They are hard-working and talented language students. They have an incredibly dedicated teacher who engages students in interactive, authentic learning experiences so that they can truly comprehend this classic language. Mirabile dictu!”
