Welcome to Mr. Clayton's Classroom!

"It's about being college ready. Period "

Welcome to my classes at John F. Kennedy High School.

HSB LogoMore college students major in business than any other field of study. Why is that? Smart students realize that, regardless of their choice of careers, a solid foundation in business is the key to being successful. Wouldn't it be great if students could major in business NOW? You can. At John F. Kennedy High School we are proud to be one of a select number of high schools in the United States to offer High School of Business. Students selected for the program follow a business elective pathway from their sophomore through their senior year.. The pathway includes: Leadership (9th non-required), Principles of Business and Business Economics (10th), Principles of Marketing and Principles of Finance (11th), Principles of Management abd Business Strategies (12th).

ACC LogoWe are proud to be be partnered with Arapahoe Community College, Littleton, to offer college credit for the High School of Business program. Students who successfully complete the program will receive 9 credit hours of business provided at no cost by Denver Public Schools. That is a savings of more that $1300 for our students and their families. In addition, it reduces the number of credits required to complete their Associate of Arts - Business degree upon graduation. Students can complete their associate degree at the Community College and transfer to a four-year college in Colorado to complete their Bachelor of Arts - Business degree at a considerable savings.


At the John F. Kennedy High School of Business, all students are members of the John F. Kennedy Business Association. The association is affiliated with both Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and DECA (An Association of Marketing Students). This relationship provides our students with a real-world connection to the business community and the opportunity to practice the skills learned in High School of Business.
