Family and Consumer Science
Our Early Childhood and Family Studies courses are taught in classrooms which double as actual *preschools. Students are taught positive parenting skills, learn about the developmental stages of children ages birth-6, and are taught how to plan, develop, and deliver lessons to preschoolers. Our unique Early Childhood and Family Studies courses are part of a state approved Career and Technical Education program.
Students interested in fashion have several courses from which to select. Fashion, fabrics, clothing construction skills, merchandising, and the fashion industry are all part of clothing courses. Interior Design is a project-based course with concentration placed on the study of design principles, color schemes, floor plans, furniture styles and architecture.
