Ridgewood NJ, more than 100,000 Latin students worldwide take the National Latin Exam and of those, only 1% achieve a perfect score. Sophomores Brian Chun and Patrick Callen, pictured here with Principal Jeff Nyhuis and Latin teachers Amy Mason and Stefanie Gigante, received a perfect score for the Intermediate Latin Reading Comprehension.

Sponsored by the American Classical League and the National Junior Classical League, the National Latin Exam is a multiple-choice 45-minute test offered to students on seven levels: Introduction to Latin, Beginning Latin, Intermediate Latin, Intermediate Latin Reading Comprehension, Advanced Latin Prose, Advanced Latin Poetry, and Advanced Latin Reading Comprehension.
