Secondary School Family & Consumer Sciences
Preparing students for life after high school is an integral goal of the Family and Consumer Sciences Classes at North Mahaska. Students will be given the opportunity to participate in a variety of lessons which include sewing, embroidery, kitchen skills and Real-Care babies. These lessons are individualized so that all students are given a chance to work with different groups of their peers and allow for a successful learning environment.
