Forty-one graduating seniors in Cactus Shadows High School‘s Class of 2015 received a Seal of Biliteracy affixed to their diplomas and annotated on their transcripts.

This is a seal that recognizes students’ ability to communicate and collaborate with others far beyond our borders.

There are 9 states that already have official, state-endorsed Seals of Biliteracy and 14 other states with pending legislation or are in the early stages.
