Falcons Soar on National German Exam

Foothill's outstanding German students were honored at a reception at Stanford April 27 with parents and teachers there to cheer them on.
An impressive 22 percent of the 95 German students who took the National German Exam scored in the 95th percentile, placing Foothill squarely at the top of Northern California schools. Two-thirds of Foothill's students ranked in the 70th percentile or better. German 3 student Brian Chang came in 6th in Northern California and was honored with books and cash as his prizes.
Students who scored in the 90th percentile or higher were honored with medallions. All students at the reception went home with certificates to recognize their achievement.
The national exam is given to students in their second, third and fourth levels of German language study to see how they compare with other students around the country. The test and reception are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of German.
