RUTHERFORD, N.J.– Four Rutherford High School students will get to visit Wall Street in June after scoring 95 or better on the Standardized National Financial Literacy Test.

Megan Donahue (96); Shyam Patel (98); Dylan Burkhalter (98); and freshman Madison Fahmy (96) are in Judith Leonard's Fundamentals of Business class.

Three other classmates scored over 90.

Fundamentals of Business is a full-year elective that fulfills students' financial literacy requirement.

"I teach them about credit, debit, financial planning, savings, money management, financial goals, compound interests, and borrowing," said Leonard, a former businesswoman with an accounting background. “I love teaching this. It's so real. You’re talking about real world things.

“It’s a useful tool.”

Leonard, a 19-year veteran who also teaches accounting at RHS, gave her students pre- and post- tests on the subjects.

“I get a lot out exposing students to this," she said.
