Posted Date: 04/26/2024

The New York State Seal of Biliteracy recognizes students who have studied and attained a high proficiency in English and another language by high school graduation. This allows students to celebrate a love for languages and cultural diversity. Students selected a topic of their choice to research connecting to the second language.  As part of their research, they identified past, present, and future components of their chosen topic to discuss. The BHS Department of World Languages is pleased to acknowledge the following graduating seniors for earning their New York State Seal of Biliteracy in 2024:
