Business Education
Business and marketing education play a prominent role in preparing students to become responsible citizens.  The purpose of business and marketing instruction in the Pattonville School District is to provide students with the necessary skills to successfully participate in the business world, continue their education, and make well-informed decisions regarding their personal lives.  Students are introduced to the basics of personal finance, the decision-making techniques needed to be wise consumers, the economic principles of an increasingly international marketplace, and the processes by which businesses operate.  By using technology, classroom activities, and a variety of leadership opportunities, the students are provided with the knowledge and frameworks needed to become successful in the business world.
