Welcome to Business Education

Overview

  • BUSINESS EDUCATION IN THE 21st CENTURY

    If you haven’t taken a business course in the last few decades, you will be pleasantly surprised at how business education across the nation has transformed. No more are the days where a student takes a business course to prepare themselves for the workforce. Instead, business courses prepare students to succeed in a global economy by providing learning experiences which combine academic, technical, and employ-ability skills. At LHS, our business education courses make a significant and vital contribution to the academic and career preparation of all students by providing rigorous and relevant courses of study, aligned to the Common Core and National Business Education standards. According to nbea.org, students who take business courses enhance their higher order thinking skills, analytical skills, essential computational skills, writing and reading skills, and technology skills. At LHS, we help students to become college and career ready by showing them how to take advantage of their personal strengths, talents, education, and experiences which will bring value to the workplace and the community through their performance, skill, diligence, ethics, and responsible behavior. Finally, we pride ourselves in teaching our students essential life skills such as personal finance to help them positively contribute to a sound, globally competitive economy, as well as how to use technology efficiently and effectively for personal and career use, and finally, how to apply the various skills learned such as law, marketing, public speaking and entrepreneurship to various personal and professional situations.
