The agriculture science program promotes a better understanding of the living environment, research, and training on the development of the agricultural productivity and farming. Students will study animals - their habits, their traits, and their roles in the environment. Learners become critical thinkers, make cross-curricular connections, and increase supplemental experiences while creating a positive and safe school environment to ensure that our students are successful academically and emotionally. The agri-animal science program allows students to have direct interaction with nature when growing and harvesting crops and raising and caring for animals as part of their curricular activities.
