• CONGRATS TO OUR 2017 GERMAN EXAM WINNERS!  

    SFHS TAKES THE NUMBER 1 SLOT IN THE STATE FOR ALL THREE LEVELS!

     

    On February 15, 2017 the results for the National German Exam were released (levels 2-4). Mr. Streacker and Ms. Legall are extremely proud to announce that our SFHS German students won 25 gold awards, i.e., they scored in the 90th percentile or better in the country (last year over 26,500 students took the exam). 10 students won silver (89th-80th percentile), 10 won bronze (79th-70th percentile), and 19 won the achievement award (69th-60th percentile - still above average). 

    SFHS has the number 1 German student in Georgia in all three levels!

     

    The award ceremony will take place at Georgia Tech on Sunday, May 1 from 2-4 p.m. At the ceremony, our Georgia German Student of the Year, Matthew Powell, will also receive his award.
