The DeForest-Windsor agriculture program was created 1948 centering on the strong foundation of agriculture and agriculture research (University of Wisconsin) that was predominant in the district.
Today it is mainly a suburban community maintaining a commitment to agricultural sciences and natural resources. The DeForest agriculture program consists of courses ranging from Animal Science to Welding, a strong cooperative internship program, an 60-acre land-lab, a 62-acre nature preserve, a 1,500 sq. ft greenhouse and a 200 member FFA (150 members in high school). With over 1,100 students in grades 9-12, our district employs three agriculture teachers to support a program of approximately 400 students.
