Science & Engineering
In the Science Department, students hone the skills necessary to ask questions, make observations, design experiments, gather and analyze data, and draw conclusions that can be shared and communicated with others. Lab courses are designed to provide an opportunity for students to utilize principles of design to apply scientific knowledge in order to solve problems.
For the class of 2019, freshmen will have a choice between Technology and Engineering or Biology; both classes will be offered at the college preparatory and accelerated level. At the completion of the school year, students will have learned the necessary skills to successfully participate in the MCAS exam in their subject area.
The graduation requirement in science lab-based coursework is the successful completion of three full credit classes (15 credits.) It is recommended that college-bound students take either accelerated or college preparatory courses in biology, chemistry, and physics.
Students who are interested in life sciences have the additional offerings of Advanced Placement classes such as AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Intro to Environmental Sciences.
Additionally, there are a variety of technology and engineering electives available for students who wish to continue their learning in STEM related fields: from physics to robotics to forensics, there are classes to challenge and interest every learner.
