AHS class first of its kind in KS

Irene Mrázek, representative of the German Agency for Schools Abroad presents Meagan Meneley with a certificate designating Abilene High School as the first German Language Diploma School in Kansas. The presentation was made at a conference in Denver on Sept. 16 and 17 by the German Agency for Schools Abroad. With this distinction, AHS may now offer two levels of language proficiency exams (DSD 1 & 2) with which students can certify that they meet the required language proficiency (B1 and C1 on the European scale) to attend higher education institutions in Germany. The big draw here is not only outstanding programs, but the German zero tuition policy for all students whether German or foreign citizens. Students who earn this official certification would likely have access to scholarship money and professional opportunities here at home as well — an all around win for students.
