German Student perform well on National German Exam!

Last month, SFHS Level 1 German students participated in the National German Exam (NGE) and 35 of them won an award! That is the MOST awards for our Level 1 classes to date!  The exam compares student scores of close to 6000 participants currently enrolled in Level 1 German nationwide and awards gold medals for scores in the 99th-90th percentile, silver medals (89th-80th percentile), bronze medals (79th-70th percentile), and achievement awards (69th-50th percentile).


Our students earned 8 gold medals, 9 silver medals, 7 bronze medals, and 11 achievement awards.  We will recognize these students at our annual Abschlussfeier (End -of -the Year Party) on May 23 at 6 p.m. at Fowler Park.
