Bank branch inside high school giving students real world experience


Windsor Federal Savings opened a branch inside Windsor High School in September, and its continuing to offer real-world experience to students.

The branch is managed and overseen by Windsor Federal Savings officials, but it's partially staffed by high school students who have had extensive training at various other branches, showing commitment, aptitude and potential that the students have.

The in-school branch is being called a great example of students actually being able to see a business in operation, and apply the principals they learn in the classroom in the real-world environment.

The hope is that the branch will bring attention to the importance of financial literacy for all students, and may be a catalyst for students to be better savers and potential investors.
