Science

Our science program concentrates on how to actually do science, learning the core ideas of the scientific method through experimental design, critique and analysis. Students start this approach on the first day of school by plunging into a Physics lab, and proceed to design experiments about motion with impact cars and catapults. Physics continues in the spring with a course on Electricity, building and testing circuits and reconstructing machines. From this foundation of physical science, students move on the Biochemistry in 10th Grade and proceed to a full understanding of life processes in Biology in 11th grade. Senior year students may choose AP Biology, AP Physics or AP Chemistry depending on demand, or take an elective such as Environmental Science.
