Culinary Arts

The County Regional Occupational (ROP) program offers many free classes on campus which are designed to prepare students for a specific job or trade and which can also count toward high school graduation elective requirements. This course provides entry-level and advanced training for positions in the food service industry. Instruction covers the following areas: career preparation, customer relations, food safety and sanitation, basic kitchen skills, food production, nutrition, workplace interactions, business math and cost control and train on commercial equipment. Ms. Flores, the Culinary Arts teacher, provides the students with opportunities to cook for themselves and feed their parents at special events.
