The inaugural year of the INCubatoredu business curriculum taught at Farmington High School was deemed a big success.
Christy Pierce, business instructor at the high school, guided four student teams through the year as they set up actual, real-world businesses with the guidance and advice of Farmington business leaders. Farmington is the first school district in Missouri to teach INCubatoredu, an advanced business course normally used in much larger school districts.
“INCubatoredu’s first year could not have gone any better,” she said. “To say that I am proud of this first class in the state of Missouri does not do them enough justice. They stayed motivated and committed all year long to get to the final pitch. Anybody that witnessed the final pitch would have to have seen the work and effort they put into the businesses.
