It's Greek to Him: Local Student Earns Perfect Score on National Greek Exam

Pranav Rupireddy is one of two perfect scores worldwide.

After just one year of learning the Greek language, Pranav Rupireddy, currently a junior at Parnassus Preparatory Charter School, was one of two students worldwide who earned a perfect score on the National Greek Exam last year. Rupireddy enjoys the language because of its difficulty.

“It’s more challenging than a typical language because it’s a different script,” Rupireddy says. “There are a lot of irregularities, and I think it’s good to have that challenge.”

Rupireddy also speaks his native language, Telugu, and has studied Spanish and Latin.
