Curriculum for Agriculture Science Education

Environmental Resource Management (ERM) is an interdisciplinary science which includes animal science, plant science, soil science, wildlife, forestry, and ecology. Students in ERM enjoy a hands-on learning approach through various labs. Students cultivate produce for culinary use from their two greenhouses, raise and release terrapins, and raise poultry. Students have the opportunity to participate in FFA, an intercurricular leadership program for students.
