Students of all levels benefit from Family and Consumer Science classes and in many cases experience success where they may not have elsewhere. When students are successful, their self-esteem is increased and they make better choices, both personally and educationally.

Employers today are looking for well-rounded individuals who can apply knowledge, use technology, make wise decisions, manage time, and work cooperatively and independently. All Family and Consumer Sciences curricula infuse these skills across the curriculum and constantly encourage strong character and responsibility.
