Engaging students completely in science by using a combination of wonder and critical thinking is at the heart of the Science Department.

Students at all levels engage in weekly, hands-on science laboratories where they learn about the natural world.

Building on that sense of inquiry - on which most learning is based - middle school students' curriculum is a much more rigorous program. Lab sessions emphasize geology, biology and physics.
