Wilmington High School Recognized As ‘Gold Standard School’ By Next Gen Personal Finance For Requiring A Personal Finance Course For All Students

Below is an announcement from Next Gen Personal Finance:

WILMINGTON, MA — High school personal finance courses change lives, with benefits ranging from higher credit scores and decreased use of predatory lenders to larger retirement account balances and a greater accumulation of wealth during students’ lifetimes. 

The following 16 Massachusetts schools inspire us because their teachers, parents, and community members have put in the work to guarantee ALL their students are getting those benefits RIGHT NOW. How? According to their course catalogs, they ensure ALL their students take at least one semester of personal finance before graduation. They’re turning “the one course I wish I had in high school” to “the course I’m glad I had in high school,” and we couldn’t be prouder to recognize them today.
