I enjoyed taking the quiz attached to this story. I never knew students who took classes like AP Economics were not required to take Personal Finance. I remember how helpful the course fair and touring Rock Bridge was for me when I was an incoming freshman, I’m glad students are still taking the time to learn about what classes RBHS and the CACC offer.
