In the past year, 171 students have participated in Culinary Arts classes at Central Decatur. Ranging from an exploratory course for all 8th grade students, an introduction to basic cooking skills in Foods 1, learning about nutrition in Food and Nutrition, to advanced baking and cooking skills in Culinary Arts and managing a food business in Business Culinary Arts, students are engaged daily in hands on learning. In addition, students work to build employability skills, communication, leadership and teamwork.
