SM East earns distinction for personal finance instruction. NGPF, a California-based non-profit focused on expanding personal finance education to high school students, has given Shawnee Mission East the distinction of being a Gold Standard School. ““With some of life’s biggest financial decisions looming – first jobs and cars, college selection, financial aid applications – high school is when students need a comprehensive personal finance education,” said NGPF co-founder Tim Ranzetta. “Requiring at least a semester course is the only airtight way to guarantee access for all. We’re thrilled to recognize these 887 Gold Standard schools for doing just that.”
