Hamilton High School is among the top 100 high schools in the country that teach personal finance based on results from the Financial Literacy Certification test. The national ranking was created by Working In Support of Education (w!se), which sponsors the test to empower students to take control of their financial futures.
To be named a Financial Literacy Certification Scholar, students scored 95 percent or higher on the test. The following Hamilton students were enrolled in Amanda Field’s personal finance course during the fall semester and were named 2017 w!se Financial Literacy Certification Scholars:
- Tyler Bartel;
- Mabel Jankowski;
- Jake Lex;
- Ethan Rahn;
- Danielle Rhodes; and
- Jason Schrader.
In addition, Jankowski earned a perfect score and is eligible for the Financial Literacy Ambassador award. Award recipients will be selected by a panel of judges based on a submitted essay and announced in July.
