The results are in and Stimson Middle School Principal Mr. Edwin Smith is proud to announce that twenty-six of his students are winners in the National French Language Contest. Of special note is our 7th grade group who practically swept the Suffolk County rankings taking nine of the top ten spots.

Out of the 87,000 seventh through twelfth graders nationally who took the exam, Stimson students placed extremely well.

They have exceeded all my expectations and I look forward to teaching them again next year.”
