The Fire Science Program of Study at Sunrise Mountain High School in Glendale, Arizona, prepares learners for postsecondary and career success by providing rigorous in-school instruction and opportunities to learn directly from experts working in the field. The program was started in 2004 due to Arizona’s critical need for employees in fire science. To meet this demand, the Peoria Fire Science Advisory Council worked with Peoria Unified School District to develop the program of study. The council continues to be involved by revising standards, determining what skills learners need to be successful in the workforce and expanding work-based learning opportunities.
