Posted: June 11, 2019

Ensuring that young people are financially literate is crucial to prepare them for future financial success. An Achievable Dream High School was named among the 2019 Best W!SE High Schools Teaching Personal Finance.

W!SE announced its 2019 ranking during a ceremony at the New York Stock Exchange in April. It is the only national ranking that recognizes excellence in personal finance instruction among the W!SE national network of schools.

The "100 Best" ranking is determined based on the average certification test score with consideration given to the number of test takers and the socio-economic background of the students.

Working In Support of Education, or W!SE, is an educational organization dedicated to building financial literacy, fostering business and social entrepreneurship, and preparing students for college and the global workplace. The organization's literacy certification program provides high school students with financial education and the opportunity to become certified financially literate. Students learn about personal finance then they take the W!SE standardized Financial Literacy test, a nationally recognized certification.
