Science is in every facet of our lives. Students are naturally curious about the world around them. We encourage our teachers to nurture students’ curiosity to probe, inspect, explore, and discover. We use hands-on STEM activities and inquiry labs. A collaborative hands on environment fosters students use in problem-solving skills while engaging students with science concepts.
Our science department prides itself on making science instruction that is innovative, challenging and engaging. Elementary and junior high campus libraries house Makerspaces, an extension of our science classroom. Students explore, define a problem, research, create a solution and a prototype. Multiple campuses have been awarded science distinctions for the 2017 school year.
