French bilingual students at Central High School were honored for their language proficiency in a ceremony at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Four students received a DELF (Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française) B2 diploma, allowing them to study at a French university.  Nine students received a DELF B1 diploma which pre-qualifies them to receive a Maryland Seal of Biliteracy on their high school diploma.  

Additionally, Educational Attache Mr. Mathieu Ausseil recognized Central High School for its recent naming as a Label FrancÉducation school, a seal of excellence by the French government for high quality, French immersion education programs. 

The Label FrancÉducation status is valid for three years and provides a dual guarantee for families: the assurance of high quality French bilingual teaching and belonging to a national and global network, with over 390 Label FrancEducation programs across 59 countries.

Central is one of only three high schools in the United States — and the only public school — to hold Label FrancÉducation accreditation.
