The Seal of Biliteracy is a national movement to recognize high school students who have achieved by the time of graduation proficiency in English and one more language. The Massachusetts seal was signed into law on November 22, 2017 and the Language Opportunity Coalition (LOC) ran a pilot program for the last three years including more than 70 districts across Massachusetts.
Tewksbury Public Schools was part of this pilot program. In order to be recipient students had to attain proficiency level in standardized tests such as AP Spanish, STAMP – Spanish, MCAS and/or ACCESS – English.
The following seniors received the Gold Award: Jason Benitez, Emma Lee, Marco Martinez; and the Silver Award: Channys Almonte, Julia Hartnett, Gabriella Moreno, Brandon Smith, Zhi Xuan Song, and Stephanie Tam.
