Students learn banking at school

From 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, an area near the guidance counselor’s office in Tahanto Regional Middle/High School turns into a bank these days. It’s part of an initiative at Tahanto to bring not just academic but also real-world learning to the school. The school partnered with Clinton Savings Bank this winter to introduce the financial studies program. The school-based bank serves as a full-service branch during its regular operating hours.
