Student Placed Top Worldwide - June 2017


 Maple Grove, MN, June 5, 2017 – Pranav Rupireddy, a sophomore at Parnassus Preparatory School in Maple Grove, has received a perfect score on the National Greek Exam - Beginning Attic Greek. Pranav was one of only two students out of the 858 who took the exam worldwide to score a perfect forty points.

The National Greek Exam is administered by the American Classical League and tests students’ knowledge of ancient Greek grammar, vocabulary, geography and culture. Ten other Parnassus’ students received awards on the National Greek Exam.

Greek is offered to students at Parnassus through the University of Minnesota’s College in the Schools Program, which gives high school students the opportunity to experience college-level coursework and to earn college credits from the university. Parnassus’ students begin their Greek coursework after several years of Latin study, with students starting their classical language studies as early as Kindergarten.

Pranav was presented with his Perfect Score Purple Ribbon award at an awards ceremony last week at the newly expanded Parnassus building. “The classical languages, Latin and Greek, are a cornerstone of our liberal arts classical program connecting students to ancient civilizations, to English and many other languages, to logical and critical analysis, and to the sciences. We are delighted with the fact that Pranav placed in the top 0.2% of test takers!” stated Constance Ford, Executive Director.
