The Clarence W. Pierce School of Agriculture is a two-year community college in Woodland Hills, California. It opened in September 1947, with 70 students and 18 faculty members and is part of the Los Angeles Community College District. The school's initial focus was crop cultivation and animal husbandry, and still retains a large swatch of open fields for hands-on working farm training. In 1956 the school was renamed Los Angeles Pierce College. Photograph caption dated March 27, 1957 reads, "Evan Maas, third from left, coordinator of student activities at Pierce Junior College, confers with students who will represent school at Governor's Conference on Youth Feb. 11 and 12 in Sacramento.
