New 9th Grade Science Curriculum
The 9th grade science curriculum for Introduction to Physical Science will be using Jason Learning in order to provide a more hands on approach to learning the essentials of the physical sciences with an introduction to Biology.

Empowering Students to Be Productive Citizens and Lifelong Learners
We chose this curriculum because it provides students with insight into careers in science as well as a link to real world science topics that our students experience in their daily lives. The science teachers at Neshaminy strive to provide our students with opportunities to succeed in science by using various methods of teaching styles.
