The positive image of a program is essential if it is to be viewed by students, teachers, counselors, administrators, and community as an important curriculum to be studied. This study was conducted in order to review the image of the business education department at Havre High School as it is perceived by students, teachers, counselors and administrators. The researcher surveyed respondents at Havre High School as to their perception of the business education department, using a five point Likert scale for indication of responses. The responses were divided into sub-categories of business programs, business teachers and business students for ease in basing conclusions and recommendations. Though many of the statements were positive, it was noted that there were some areas of concern. Business educators should familiarize all segments of Havre High School and its surrounding community of it's offerings through good public relation efforts. Students should be proud to be enrolled in business education and can be assured of quality education received. The business education programs at Havre High School must continue to be up-dated and revised to keep current with trends being developed. It is imperative that program standards be set so goals can be established to meet high expectations. The business education teachers should continue to become professionally aware of trends and innovations in the constantly changing business environment. This will provide marketable students and give college-bound students a more complete and current background in business. It is recommended by this researcher that the conclusions and recommendations of this study be reviewed and ideas implemented into the business education program at Havre High School, Havre, Montana.
