The study of science provides students with powerful ways to understand the natural world. We seek to inspire students’ curiosity, develop critical thinking and analytical skills, and provide a foundation for further exploration.
Our curriculum emphasizes laboratory work, data analysis, problem solving and clear communication. All Science courses are lab-based and meet for the equivalent of five periods each cycle. Students must satisfactorily complete one course in physical science and one course in biological science.
Typically, students take Physics in 9th grade, Chemistry in 10th grade and Biology in 11th grade. Advanced Physics, Advanced Chemistry, Advanced Biology, Environmental Science are available to students who complete introductory coursework. All students must take three years of major coursework in science.
