Add a Business Class for Saratoga High School

Hello everybody!

My name is Brian Zhu and I am a junior. I have been very interested in the business field for quite some time and I have always wanted to hone my business skills and build my resume to gain admissions into a strong business school for college. However, I have found that Saratoga High School lacks important business resources, such as business classes, which are a prerequisite to have in order to run certain clubs such as DECA.

We live in the Silicon Valley, which has and always will be the birthplace of many startups. As a high school student here, it is crucial for us to gain some entrepreneurial experience. However, Saratoga High School has fallen behind other schools in this area. Schools such as Lynbrook, Monta Vista, and Fremont High all have classes such as finance, accounting, international business, marketing, banking, marketing, and much more. As we do not even have a basic business introduction class, our only option is to self study. With extracurriculars, DECA is an extremely famous business club which I am sure many of you have heard of. We are at a significant disadvantage among potential business majors at other schools. I know that many of you are also frustrated with this issue.

I think it's time to take action, both for us and for future students of Saratoga High School. I believe that we should petition for Saratoga High School to add business classes to our current course offerings, so that we will enjoy business resources like the students in other school districts already do. By signing this petition, you are showing your support to make a positive difference in our school -- please show your support today!
