Agriculture

The Agriculture Department at Sycamore High School allows students to gain hands-on experience while teaching them to apply their skills in the areas of science, mechanics, technology, and horticulture.
 

In addition to the traditional classroom setting, students may work in the woodworking shop, welding shop, small engines and electricity shop, greenhouse, barn, or land lab. Students enrolled in agriculture courses have the opportunity to join FFA — one of the largest student leadership organizations in the country — although this is not a requirement.
