Congratulations to our National German Exam top scorers. The National German Exam is administered each year to nearly 22,000 high school students in the second, third and fourth level of German. The Exam, now in its 55th year, provides individual diagnostic feedback, rewards students through an extensive prize program, and creates a sense of accomplishment. Exam results provide a means of comparing students in all regions of the country, as well as programmatic data provided to help inform curricular decisions. Gold award recipients are eligible to compete for the national AATG/PAD Study Trip Awards, a four-week study trip program in Germany.
Thirty-two FA students participated in the 2015 National German Exam. The following students received awards:
Bronze (70th-79th percentile): Sam Bumpus, Isabel Davern, Samuel Giancola, Regina Ledwell, Owen Sullivan, Quinn Van Tol

Congratulations to our seniors. They’ve survived the college search process and were proud to wear the emblems of the colleges they will attend in the fall. As the end-of-the-year activities begin, we send them our encouragement to finish their time as Falmouth Academy students in style.
