Ten students in the Mariemont High School/ Great Oaks High School of Business™ satellite program scored among the top business students nationwide on rigorous exams to test their business knowledge.
The exams are part of the High School of Business program, a national accelerated business administration program. Sarah Morgan placed first in Marketing; Wilson Compton placed third and Alexander Wilson placed fourth in Business Economics; Emily Ferguson tied eighth in Finance; Will Hobart and Katie Newman tied sixth, Morgan Rowe placed seventh and Anthony Dimichele tied eighth in Management; Will Hobart placed third in Business Strategies (Entrepreneurship); and Jacob Crabtree and Parker Gilmore tied eighth in Wealth Management.
“Once again, we at Mariemont High School are very proud of how well our High School of Business students have competed locally as well as nationally," said Dr. James Renner, principal at Mariemont High School. "This is a testament to their strong work ethic, the rigorous and enriching curriculum, and diligence on the part of their teacher.”
The school ranks in the top nine nationally in the number of students scoring in the top 20. Nationally there were only 30 schools with at least one student in the top 20 nationwide and only nine with at least six students in the top 20.
Students participating in High School of Business™ complete hands-on business projects. The program includes observational internships, opportunities to earn college credit and local oversight via a steering team of business professionals, school personnel, parents and former students.
This accelerated program is designed for college-bound students with interest in business administration careers, such as marketing, finance, entrepreneurship and management.
