    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Gillis is a fantastic teacher, and really knew what she was talking about, which you want in any teacher. She went over employment information, filing taxes, and paying bills. Also managing your money, and other financial subjects.

    Course highlights:

    Saving is very important, and if you are planning on going to college, file your FAFSA as soon as you can/when the updated form is available.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    do all your homework, because there is barely any, and you should really pay attention.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Although it is required at my high school to take financial literacy in order to graduate, I would definitely recommend it to any high schooler, especially incoming seniors. This course teaches you about basic concepts of financials that everyone will discover in life, even if that means discovering after mistakes have been made. This course allows you to have an advantage over others that haven't taken the class because you know how to do things like writing a check, balancing a checkbook, making SMART goals, budgeting and so much more. Not only did we learn many tasks we will need to know in life, but we also had fun while doing it such as pretending to buy a car and having to make little decisions about it such as what you wanted and how you were going to pay for it. We even applied it to our current life such as looking at how much the average teenager spends at Starbucks and how we could save up for a new phone.

    Course highlights:

    I gained that making connections is important and will help you out as you go through life. I also learned about tasks such as researching opening a bank account and how there are many scholarships to help pay for college such as this one. It also taught me about FAFSA and how I may be able to apply and get financial aid in college. I even learned about W-2s and W-4s and I-9s and 1040EZs, all which help when applying for taxes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A lot of it is common sense, but this course gives you the connecting links so that you know how everything fits together. By taking this relaxing and influential course, you can learn about the many financial decisions you must make and how to make the right one.
