Students score first, third in national math
Two students at Harrison High School scored among the top business students nationwide on rigorous exams to test their business knowledge.
The exams are part of the school’s High School of Business program, a national accelerated business administration program, taught by Trevor Ward and sponsored through Great Oaks.
About 4,500 students from across the nation participated in the program during the 2013-14 school year.
Mikel Britton and Amanda Pack received top scores in the “Business Strategies” category. Britton scored a 95 and was top in the nation. Pack who earned a score of 93 was third highest in the nation.
Students participating in High School of Business complete hands-on business projects through a series of six courses.
The program includes observational internships, opportunities to earn college credit, and local oversight via a steering team of college faculty, business professionals, and school personnel.
High School of Business is a program of MBAResearch, a non-profit organization specializing in educational research and the development of business and marketing curriculum for high schools and colleges.
The accelerated program is designed for college-bound students with interest in business administration careers, such as marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, or management.
