Science Department

The Science Department creates a student-centered environment that fosters an appreciation for the nature of science and its interconnectedness to the global community. Students have opportunities to learn about topics through inquiry and engage in the collection and interpretation of data, as well as discussing and presenting facts. Students are immersed in the practices of science where they apply their understanding of core concepts to today’s issues and questions.


“In science, students learn about the world around them, from microscopic particles, to towering sequoias, and everything in between. But more importantly, students learn how to learn about the world around them – developing the concepts and skills required to expand our horizons.”
