Grand Junction H.S of Business Succeeds in First Year

GJHS Students beat national averages on the program's exam

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The Grand Junction High School of Business program beats national averages in just the first year of classes.

The high school is the first institution to bring the program, organized by MBA research, to the Western Slope.
    
Business and its associated fields are some of the most sought-after career fields as every fifth bachelor's degree awarded is a business degree.     

The High School of Business program aims to give high-school students a head start.
"I can understand what exactly it takes to run business and then what goes into running a business." said Dalton Roethel, a sophomore at Grand Junction High School.

The students at Grand Junction High School have started out sprinting, averaging a 69% on the program's exam, beating the national average of 60%.

The program has convinced some students to take another look at the field.

"It's actually kind of inspired me to go the business route in college and get a business degree and this should help." said Ivy Seacrest, a sophomore at Grand Junction Police Department.

This project based program includes basically every subject— in addition for the potential of college credit, students a credited for English, Math and Technology courses.
