Four CRLS Seniors Earn Double Seal of Biliteracy!

We are delighted to share that six of our seniors and one junior achieved a Double Seal of Biliteracy this spring, which is an extraordinary achievement! Congratulations to all of them, including Ruggiero Botto (Italian and Spanish), Julian Massari (Italian and Spanish), Michael Herrick (French and Spanish) and Masato Hall (Chinese and Japanese), and all of our CRLS Students who have received the Seal of Biliteracy this year. We are incredibly proud of you!

The MA Seal of Biliteracy is a national initiative to recognize high levels of proficiency in another language. There are multiple pathways to achieve the Seal at CRLS. This year, 45 seniors out of approximately 470 received the Seal of Biliteracy in one of ten languages, two-thirds achieving the Seal with Distinction.
