Department Overview

  • The science department strives to engage the students in learning that extends beyond the classroom setting through community partnerships and extra-curricular activities. Our goal is to nourish our students’ love of science by providing hands-on, real world opportunities for them to learn and grow.The science department offers a broad range of course work in Life Science, Earth Science, and the Physical Sciences.

    At the high school, students take either Biology, Chemistry, and Physics or Environmental Science, Biology, and Chemistry. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are available for each of these courses. Students interested in a fourth year of Science can take AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Physics, Forensics, or Anatomy and Physiology. 

    Additionally, the department sponsors the Environmental Club, Marine Science and Astronomy Club, and The Science National Honor Society.

    We provide faculty-sponsored learning opportunities for our students after school, on weekends, and during summer vacation. We have partnered with Learn and Serve America, the Audubon Society, and the Meadowlands Environmental Center to enhance the science curriculum in our school.
