Science

  • The Science Department curriculum is based on the Massachusetts Science Curriculum Frameworks. Our department is committed to providing our students with the tools and concepts necessary to pass the Grade 10 Science MCAS. We have selected key topics to stress within the instructional time for Science. We strive to move our students to internalize high standards, while providing support and encouragement to make their success a reality. It is our goal that our students will appreciate the complexity of our natural world by improving their observation, thinking and writing skills. We try to deliver concrete hands on experiences which will enhance student understanding. English Math and Senior Project standards are reinforced with the inclusion of mini-research projects. The Science Department addressees scientific thinking and concepts in the Science domains: Biology, Physics/Technology/Engineering, Chemistry and Earth Science in order to promote science literacy among our students. A scientifically literate society of workers is our best hope.
