2019 SENIOR SEAL OF BILITERACY RECIPIENTS

Last year was the first year that graduating Arizona students could earn a Seal of Biliteracy on their diploma and reflected on their transcripts. The seal was created to reward high school students who were proficient in English and at least one other language as evidenced by their performance on a state board approved assessment. This year, Chandler High is proud to have 91 seniors earn this distinction!
