Our school district has a K-12 Science curriculum that promotes the development of skills that enable students to use a scientific approach to think critically about the world in which they live and construct their own perspective on scientific issues.
Students at the middle school level are encouraged to use these skills in the development of science and engineering fair projects that can be entered in the local North Museum Science and Engineering Fair. As students transition to the high school, they continue to develop their skills in quantitative methods and the conventions of technical writing.
Our department offers a wide range of exploratory opportunities for students who are interested in the science field. Students are provided a rigorous laboratory-oriented curriculum in general science, biology, chemistry and physics. Students who are interested, and complete the prerequisites, may choose to take elective courses including AP courses in chemistry, biology, physics, environmental science as well as biology II and chemistry II. All of these courses are designed for students interested in exploring careers in the sciences and secondary educational opportunities.
