Science Department Mission Statement
The development of scientifically literate individuals includes an emphasis on the process, content, and skills embedded within science. Our students will have a growing understanding and appreciation of the workings of the physical world. Science is a method of coming to know; the process itself teaches the need for exploration. An openness to growth can lead to the desire for life-long learning. As we guide our students down this path, their experiences within the classroom help them become scientifically literate. Students learn to recognize the appropriate uses of technology and therefore the need for ethical decision-making processes becomes significant. Science education stresses the importance of making connections through exploration in an attempt to instill a spirit of adventure and wonder in every student.
