Department Philosophy

Our science department strives to prepare students for college and career options. Our courses reflect both an investigative and experimental nature in understanding science. Students participate in laboratory experiments, discussions, written statements and reflections,calculations, and oral presentations in order to learn and practice transferable skills that extend beyond the science classroom.
