Nine students earned over 90% correct on January’s National German Exam, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of German. The best HHS results were 99% by one non-native speaker and one native speaker of German. Two qualified to apply for the Association’s Study Trip Award, which HHS students have won twice in the past. Twenty-two HHS students joined 26,000 high-schoolers nation-wide in taking the annual exam.

“These are very good results and we can be proud of our students’ academic achievements,” said German teacher Uwe Goodall-Heising. He also credits the excellent teaching of Heddy Fantl (retired in 2007) and Penelope Prendergast.
