I agree that this is the best course of action. A mix of school and work is ideal. Schooling gives you knowledge of things such as how to run a business and the different types of grass. Working for other companies gives you practical knowledge. By seeing what works and what doesn't by working for a landscaper can be invaluable as well as you may get a mentor for later.
