“Every year we see how hard students have worked and this morning’s program celebrates their achievements,” said Principal Greco. “Not only have our students achieved stellar scores on the National German Exam, several students have passed the German Language Diploma that would allow them to study at German-speaking universities in Europe.  We applaud their hard work and ongoing commitment to learning German.”

The non-profit GLSMC develops students’ communicative proficiency in the German language and increases academic excellence.  The school introduces students to the cultural heritage of German-speaking countries, their modern achievements and their contributions to the US and offers an experience that helps increase Weltoffenheit.
