Amos P. Godby High School has a long tradition of offering unique programs, beginning with our Agriculture program which began with the opening of the school. One of their more memorable achievements is building Cougar Plaza. After a short absence, the reestablished program is now focusing on Horticulture with students creating a garden outside the 400 building.
In 1982, we activated the first Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp in the county. FL811, an Air Force JROTC affiliate is still going strong.
Through the 1990's we were the ESOL Center. Though short-lived, in 2008 we created a construction program that actually built three houses that were eventually sold to the public. We also experimented with an automotive mechanics program that even had its own lift. The Academy of Finance in 2010 started participating in the IRS Volunteer Tax Assistance Program (VITA). We still provide this service, though the academy has since been absorbed into the IT Academy.
Continuing in this long tradition, we now offer five programs to meet the diverse needs of society and are pretty cool for our students to experience.
