Our Science department offers a strong curriculum enhanced by collaboration between teachers and students, and proper sequence and connectivity between each of the science disciplines. Well-chosen concepts and content incorporate issues of technology and society, and include discovery, inquiry, critical thinking and problem-solving experiences.
The Science department faculty assume responsibility for helping adolescents learn to use their minds well, for seeing that students master essential skills and areas of knowledge, for asking students to apply and extend their understanding and for ensuring that these essentials apply to all students. The Science department believes that teaching and learning must be challenging and personalized to the maximum feasible extent, and that students must have the opportunity to excel in both fundamental and advanced course work. Advanced courses and honors designations are available to students who excel in the sciences.
