Financial literacy organization Next Gen Personal Finance has recognized Sturgeon Bay High School for its coursework helping students be better with money. Anchored by teacher Michelle Gibson, Sturgeon Bay is one of only 600 high schools with the NGPF Gold Standard distinction because of its required, semester-long personal finance course. Gibson says the skills learned by students in the course are important for them to know later in life.
According to the NGPF, only one in six American students graduate from high school with a required personal finance course. Gibson says she is now attending webinars curated by the NGPF to learn how she can potentially improve her course even more.
