  • Waring Shines with 69 National Laureates in 2017 Le Grand Concours

    The results of Le Grand Concours 2017 are in and are truly impressive with 69 national laureates out of the 150 students present the day of the contest.
    Le Grand Concours is the National French Contest for students of French in middle and high school. This year 78,899 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, 3 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 proud to have 69 national laureates receiving 69 medals: 21 gold (95th percentile), 32 silver (85th or 90th percentile), and 16 bronze (75th or 80th percentile).

  • Two Waring Athletes Honored

    Elizabeth Patrick in Girls Soccer and Ella Bellin in Cross Country, were honored as Boston Globe 2016 Prep School All-Scholastics.  Both Patrick and Bellin were nominated as their league's Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Runner for their respective sports.  It is quite an honor to have one Globe All-Scholastic a season, but in typical Waring fashion, we seem to pack a big punch for such a small school.
