Agriscience Magnet Program (AMP)

Tremendous Opportunities Await

The Agriscience Magnet prepares high school students for agribusiness careers through a program that addresses the targeted occupations of the region and to offer courses of study that provide a direct career path for higher education. The AMP offers seven pathways in agriculture including animal science, environmental science, agriculture communications, mechanized agriculture, agribusiness marketing, veterinary medicine, and plant science.

The Real Experience in the Big City

The AMP Complex is located on 22 acres in Northeast San Antonio on the campus of Madison High School. We have the unique opportunity to educate our students in the educational and career opportunities within the agriculture, food and natural resource world.

From Concept to Consumer

We can take the mystery out of being an entrepreneur. Our students take ideas and create a complete business model that connects a customer with the product from concept, through research and design, to production and processing, to marketing and distribution.
