We study a broad array of Agricultural topics at the middle school level. As an introductory class, we form an educational foundation that help students with more complex and specialized agriculture classes in high school.
Middle School Agriculture teaches leadership skills through FFA, introduces students to modern agriculture practices as well as identifies environmental issues that directly and indirectly impact the field. At this level students learn basic research skills by participating in hands-on, interactive activities that teach them about plant and animal sciences.
Agriculture seamlessly integrates theories and processes of core curriculum and aids in strengthening language arts, science and math skills in an applied, fun, exciting environment.
All of our course assignments are completed on CANVAS. Students log into CANVAS via their Wake ID. Please ask your student to show you their assignments, and grades on CANVAS.
