Waring Shines Again With 82 National Laureates in Le Grand Concours


Le Grand Concours is the National French Contest for students in middle and high school. This year over 90,000 students were enrolled across the US. The competition uses authentic cultural material from a number of francophone countries and tests students’ oral comprehension, reading, and grammar knowledge.

The contest places students in different fluency categories depending on their backgrounds to ensure fairness. It takes into account their levels of French, years of study of the language, and also family backgrounds. At Waring, 6 students were placed in the bilingual/bicultural category for their respective levels. The results of their performances were ranked separately.

This year, once again, our students excelled in the Grand Concours. Waring is so proud to have 82 national laureates receiving 82 medals: 2 platinum (for a perfect score), 20 gold (95th percentile), and 21 silver (85th to 90th percentile), and 39 bronze (75th to 80th percentile).
