Nearly 120 Rockwood Students Graduate with Missouri Seal of Biliteracy

Nearly 120 Rockwood School District students representing all four district high schools earned Missouri Seal of Biliteracy or Distinguished Missouri Seal of Biliteracy recognition this year.

The Missouri Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to graduating high school students in districts with a DESE-approved program who have demonstrated achievement in English, a language other than English and sociocultural competence. All Missouri students studying any of the world’s languages are potential Seal candidates. According to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), a total of 1,692 students across the state earned the Seal of Biliteracy in 2023.

This year, Rockwood students earned the Seal in Spanish (86 students), French (27) and Arabic, German, Polish, Russian and Tamil (one each). A total of seven Rockwood students earned the Distinguished Missouri Seal of Biliteracy, recognizing students who show an advanced level of proficiency in at least two languages, and two Rockwood students earned the Seal of Biliteracy in two different languages.

Congratulations to these outstanding students! Here are the 116 Rockwood students who earned the Missouri Seal of Biliteracy and Distinguished Seal this year, along with in which langauge(s) they earned the honor.
