Since the 1997/98 school year, over 300,000 students have experienced Reality Town. Created by Jane Parker, a middle school business teacher, Reality Town was developed to teach students about budgeting, debt, fiscal responsibility and the importance of education. In talking with other schools, she soon realized that there was a great need for this method of education and began the process of refining the curriculum so that others could also learn from the Reality Town experience.
The concept behind Reality Town is to give students a hands-on experience where they actually interact with people from their community rather than a computer version that does not allow for that interaction.
Our company commitment is to deliver a quality product that helps schools to help student see that it takes effort on their part to create the life they want to lead.
