Horticulture - Within the agriculture department, we have the horticulture science pathway. This pathway prepares students for careers in greenhouse management, landscape design, turf management, and plant growth and care, through tasks such as germinating and propagating plants, managing the school greenhouse, and producing lettuce for the school cafeteria. Students learn valuable skills such as communication and leadership skills, learning how to effectively run a business, and improving school facilities. By taking courses in this pathway, students can be involved in the National FFA Organization, which is the largest student-led organization, preparing with valuable life skills both in and out of the agriculture industry.
