New for the 2018-2019 school year, the district is offering a food science course for 11th- and 12th-grade students. This course is designed to reinforce and enhance students’ knowledge of scientific principles and processes as it applies to the study of food and nutrition and is used as a science credit.

Food science connects aspects of food chemistry, biology, earth science and psychology to real-life examples through class discussions, experiments, projects and cooking labs. High School West students recently learned about macronutrients during a hands-on lab. They studied complex carbohydrates and made bagels and butter by altering the physical state of a liquid.
