Over 400 Parnassus Latin students in the Schools of Logic and Rhetoric sat for the National Latin Exam this year. This is Parnassus’ sixth year of administering the National Latin Exam (NLE). Overseen by the National Junior Classical League, the National Latin Exam tests students’ knowledge of the Latin language and of classical Roman culture. Parnassus students have historically performed very well on the NLE and we are very excited to receive our results later this spring!
Congratulations to 4L scholar Aditya Pydimarri who emerged triumphant as Parnassus’ School Geography Bee champion. 2L scholar Danny Dorfman was our second place finisher and 3L scholar Anastasia Kolosovsky placed third.

With a mission to inspire, illuminate and teach, the National Geographic Society is one of the world’s largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations. The member-supported Society, which believes in the power of science, exploration and storytelling to change the world, reaches over 600 million people each month through its media platforms, products and events. National Geographic has funded more than 11,000 research, conservation and exploration projects, and its education programs promote geographic literacy.
Aditya is awaiting the results of his qualifying test to determine if he will proceed to the State Championship Bee later this spring. We wish him the best of luck!
