Bartow Middle FFA focuses on developing premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education. Being a part of an agriculture education class gives students an abundance of hands-on opportunities not found anywhere else. Students also have many opportunities throughout the year to raise animal or plant projects, complete certification tests to earn scholarships, and learn a set of skills that will benefit them through their lifetime.
Bartow Middle School’s Pre-Medical Academy is designed to introduce students to the various careers in the healthcare industry. Students in the academy learn a variety of skills, such as basic anatomy, medical terminology, vital signs, and basic first aid, along with adult, child, infant, and pet CPR. High school credit is awarded with successful completion of the 8th grade Medical Skills class. The goal of the BMS medical academy is to build the confidence of students through hands-on learning, in an effort to inspire students to pursue a career as a healthcare professional.
