  • Tremendous Opportunities Await

     

    The Agriscience Magnet Program (AMP) is a unique experience within the North East ISD, which offers rigorous courses that are relevant to the student’s future and connected to the real world. Students have numerous facilities in which they are able to access state-of-the-art equipment that helps them solve complex problems and prepares them for the future.

    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.

    Through agricultural education, students are provided opportunities for leadership development, personal growth and career success. Agricultural education instruction is delivered through three major components:

    1. Classroom/laboratory instruction (contextual learning)
    2. Supervised Agricultural Experience programs (work-based learning)
    3. Student leadership organizations (FFA)

    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.
