Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences Reviews

The Chicago High School for Agricultural is one of the most unique schools around. The school is located on a 72-acre campus, 40 acres of which are dedicated to a working farm. That's right a farm! In Chicago! As a school! That's not all though, as time goes on the Chicago Ag has been trying to enhance their athletic program to be more competative with schools around the neighborhood such as Brother Rice, Marist, MCcauley, Morgan Park High School, St.Rita and Evergreen Park High School. With such high competition the athletes are driven not only in the sport but in the classroom as well. With my 4-years of being at the Chicago Ag, one major upside of the school I have noticed is that the teachers and administration really puts their best foot forward to coup with all types of learners. Even if the solution that is given does not work, not one member of the staff is afraid to make a sacrafice to better off the students chances to not only college, but to their overall education.

I think that it is awesome that students like myself, are learning about agriculture and all the endless possibilities that come with it. The six pathways that Chicago Ag offers are: Food science , Animal science, Biotech, Horticulture, Fiance and Mech tech. I can't say that any other high school has offers all the great opportunities that my school does such as job shadows, internships and field trips. Attending this school has really changed my outlook on my career. Chicago Ag has connected me with so many great companies that every summer I am given a paid internship inn the field I love, Food Science. I found a way to connect what I love doing, dance to agriculture. Networking with amazing people from companies from like PepsiCo and Eli's Cheese cake company has really pushed me to do so much more in the future.
Chicago High School of Agricultural Sciences is a place of exemplary opportunity. Many resources are available to students and faculty and it is always a positive learning environment. I have had the opportunity to participate in many extracurricular activities such as sports and FFA. Also, we receive a specialized education within our pathways . The pathways offered at my school include Animal Science, Biotechnology in Agriculture Today, Agricultural Mechanics and Technology, Horticulture, Food Science, and Agricultural Finance.
