December 2015 Issue

Who Are We?

We believe science is a natural part of the learning process. After all, it's the world we live in. We are committed to motivating our students, creating a passion for the love of science through exploration and investigation! We also believe that all students should be given the opportunity to enhance their critical thinking skills, scientific reasoning and problem solving. All students will be provided the opportunity to conduct laboratory and field investigations at least 40% of the instructional time. By providing our students with high quality instruction and curriculum, they will be able to make informed decisions about the world they live in.
