Science

Students engage in scientific methods and hands-on experiences to increase their understanding of scientific concepts. In Middle School science lab, students utilize technology and traditional scientific instruments to deepen their scientific understanding. Students investigate the Earth's formation, weather patterns, the atmosphere, the oceans and space. Students develop an appreciation for the interdependence of all living things and learn about the foundations of earth’s various ecosystems, and then ultimately investigate matter, electricity, light and the basic laws of physics. The 8th grade science trip to the Teton Science School in Jackson, Wyoming complements our curriculum by developing environmental awareness, and has the added allure of snowshoeing and sleigh riding. In the 6th and 7th grades, students meet daily for 45 minutes. In the 8th grade, students meet for 90 minutes every other day to account for lab exploration and field experiences.
