Building on concepts and content from preceding years, the high school science program provides students with the skills, knowledge, and experiences that lead to the development of young adults who are capable of assuming their role as productive thinking citizens. The high school science program strives to provide students with experience in making informed decisions, through the analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data, on scientific topics and issues that affect our society and environment. With a focus on critical thinking and problem solving, the high school science curriculum is founded on the in-depth study of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The contemporary issues and approaches of these courses are supplemented with a variety of electives allowing students to not only fulfill their science requirements, but also pursue their interests in an array of science topics through rigorous and relevant courses ranging from Astronomy to Forensics to Zoology.  Science courses are well subscribed to but must be limited in size due to safety concerns in the laboratory setting and as a result scheduling priority is based on senior status and previous performance in math and science.
