Long Beach High School students have demonstrated excellence in their French language studies, evident in their success at numerous competitive events.

Ninth-grader John Macaluso Vosganian placed second in the Long Island Language Teachers Annual World Language Poster Contest’s high school division for his poster, "Language Breaks Barriers."

Long Beach High School swept two categories of the Long Island Language Teachers World Language Competition in the poetry category, for which sophomores and juniors wrote original poetry in French with the theme of "Family and Quarantine." In Division B2, Lindsay Hoffman placed first, Hailey Brandt placed second, Abigail Parilla placed third and Ava Hetzler received an Honorable Mention. In Division C, Ben Armus took first place, second and third went to Noelle Main and Joseph Sukonik, respectively, and Isadora Turbek attained an Honorable Mention.

Approximately 20 students represented Long Beach in the rigorous National French Contest. Louise Roser-Dialma received a gold medal and ranked first in Nassau County and second nationwide. Adrian Teodoro won a bronze medal, and Ben Armus, Angelica Bonilla, Lindsay Hoffman, Chandler Rosenzweig, Caroline Roser-Dialma and Isadora Turbek each earned a "Mention d'Honneur".

Congratulations on these well-earned accomplishments!
