To qualify for La Sociedad, students must study Spanish for a minimum of three years and maintain a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher in Spanish during that time. Students must also display a deep interest in Hispanic studies and culture.

Of the members of the MHS chapter of La Sociedad, 94 percent are enrolled in dual credit or Advanced Placement Spanish courses here at the high school — a level of excellence we are proud of!

La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica was founded by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese in 1953. There are more than 2,000 chapters throughout the United States. All accredited secondary schools are encouraged to organize a chapter of the society. Our chapter, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, was established at MHS in 2009.

Officers for the 2016-17 school year are President Anne Marie Conrad, First Vice President Nicholas Spitzer, Second Vice President Juan Perez, Secretary/Treasurer Micah Hoeksema, and Social Chairperson Abby Eltzroth. Senora Karen Luney, MHS Spanish teacher, is the sponsor.
