Dorchester Business Students Compete With State's Largest Schools

Can Dorchester High School compete with the likes of Lincoln East, Bellevue West, Bellevue East and Columbus?

In the area of business competition, it appears so!

For those who are unfamiliar, the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is a nationwide career and technical student organization.  FBLA is the largest student-run organization in the United States.  

DHS did not have an FBLA charter until the 1991-92 school year.  A quarter century later, while numbers in some other DHS activities have declined, DHS' FBLA membership remains strong -- impressive for a Class D school.  (DHS dropped from Class C to Class D in school year 1991-92, ironically.) 

Over the years, Dorchester has become a force to be reckoned within the FBLA universe and its statewide competitions, and DHS students have been elected as statewide FBLA officers.
