Coronado’s Business Department offers many clubs, classes, and programs that focus on valuable lessons in money management, computer sciences, and other skills useful in future opportunities. Ms. Brandt is the chair of the department and works alongside Mr. Gryboski, Mr. Philipsen, and Mr. Yeh to manage the many classes offered.

Mr. Gryboski teaches Personal Finance, Business Law, Accounting, and Game Programming. He also supervises the Entrepreneurship Club, which gives members an opportunity to learn what it’s like to be in an important position in the business world and allows them to experience responsibility and management. Mr. Gryboski said that “The business department encompasses job ready skills and trying to get students ready for the workplace as well as continuing education. We primarily focus on practical skills… like in my personal finance class, when you start saving money, what type of investments are a good option as you get older.”

Mrs. Brandt teaches website design, computer applications, and business and marketing.

She says that “in these classes, we focus on getting students ready for their career and what they’re going to see in college. In computer application, I focus on resume writing and career searches and budgeting and how to put those together to do what you need to do outside of high school. In marketing I teach you how to prepare yourself to market any business.”
