Department Overview

  • The science department strives to engage the students in learning that extends beyond the classroom setting thorough 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 department sponsors the

    • environmental club,
    • astronomy club, and
    • science 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.

    The science department offers a broad range of course work in

    • Life Science,
    • Earth Science, and
    • Physical Sciences.

     

    Students in the Middle School participate in daily hands-on activities that have a life science focus in seventh grade and a physical science focus in eighth grade.

    At the high school level, freshmen are given the opportunity to select Environmental Science, Earth Science, or Honors Biology as the foundation for their high school science courses. The department offers a solid curriculum of biology, chemistry, and physics for the upper classmen as well as advanced courses in Honors Anatomy and Physiology, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics.
