Middle & High School Science

2017 - 2018 Middle & High School Science Courses


Our science courses are interactive, lab-based, and highly engaging to students.  We use the best resources we can find for each subject, keeping current research on how learning happens in mind as we plan our year. We choose teachers with an enthusiasm for and experience in each subject, as well as an enthusiasm for interacting with our students to help them get their best learning experience.  Our goal is a memorable course that results in understanding and mastery of concepts, a solid base of knowledge and enjoyment of the process to increase retention.  Students will start class with games and activities to introduce and review relevant terms.  A variety of media may also be used to introduce and reinforce new concepts.  Presentations, projects, experiments and demonstrations will be done by students with teacher supervision.  Homework may consist of research for presentations, projects to show and share knowledge,  vocabulary review assignments, and reading.  All of these add up to a memorable course that will remain with students long-term rather than having them only remember facts for a test and promptly forget them.
