37 Wheatley Students Celebrated for Earning the Seal of Biliteracy!

Wheatley is proud to announce that 37 members of the Class of 2022 will be awarded the New York State Seal of Biliteracy! The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.  

The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.  The intent of the NYSSB is to encourage the study of languages, to identify high school graduates with language and biliteracy skills for employers, to provide universities with additional information about applicants seeking admission and placement, to prepare students with twenty-first century skills, to recognize the value of world, classical and home language instruction in schools, and to affirm the value of diversity in a multilingual society.

Students demonstrate the required level of proficiency for the Seal by completing and presenting a Culminating project, scholarly essay, or portfolio in the target language. Thanks to the leadership of Mrs. Tara Tassani (our Director of World Langauges and ENL), Mrs. Joan Anderson (who retired two years ago) and our dedicated World Language and ENL Faculty (Mrs. Martinez, Ms. Jacobson, Mr. Rivero, Mrs. Principe-Franco, Mr. Henley, Mrs. Vasselman, Mr. Craven, Ms. Dennington and Mrs. Leibert), Wheatley has been a Seal of Biliteracy leader in New York State.
