Science Department

Main Content


The Science Department provides opportunities for students to develop 21st-century learning skills through courses that promote the development of critical thinking and decision-making skills in order to foster scientifically literate citizens. Students explore phenomena in the natural world, create models, and design solutions to real-world problems. Students engage in science and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts to obtain, process, and make sense of scientific data. Science classes provide a space for students to work in cooperative groups and collaborate as they connect the content taught in the science classroom to real-life experiences and careers. Hands-on learning extends beyond the classroom through field trips, speakers, and community partnerships.
