Atwater High School
During the 2013-2014 school year, Atwater High School, in Atwater, California, became the single-largest agriculture program in the United States, with more than 900 high school agriculture students -- more than half of the student body at Atwater. In a school where the majority of students are from low-income families without a background in agriculture, the program at Atwater offers students experiences in agriculture otherwise not possible.
