VCHS Students Test Out of College Level Spanish Courses

OU Placement TestingOn March 8, 2019, students in Spanish 3 and 4 attended Ohio University to take the Ohio University Spanish placement exam and take a college tour. Students had the opportunity to figure out their current level of Spanish and learn about what the university has to offer. We would like to congratulate all the students who tested out of levels, especially Eli Griffith for holding the highest score with a 438, meaning he will start Ohio University at 3110 Spanish, which will give him the opportunity to work on his Spanish minor. Congratulations to all and a special thanks to a General Mills donation, which funded transportation. Click More + to see additional pictures.
