RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- A.R. Johnson Magnet School is getting some new programs for students this year.
A new computer-based architectural course and a dental sciences health course will now be available for students.
Teachers at the school say programs like these prepare students for what they may actually be using if they pursue a career in one of those fields.
"We actually have industry standard software that are students are learning and will use in the future," said one engineering teacher.
This year, students at the school will also have the opportunity to participate in engineering internships or hospital clinical.
Students on the health science track have the opportunity to graduate with up to four medical certifications.
