How the new New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) look in Lockport
Lockport High School teachers and staff are working toward the implementation of the NYSSLS where an emphasis is placed on student inquiry and engagement in natural scientific phenomenon. The NYSSLS are comprised of three dimensions to learning which include scientific and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and cross-cutting concepts. The Lockport City School District supports the necessary changes to the science standards, including science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) integration. Newly renovated science classrooms and the creation of a STEM Hub are state of the art learning environments at Lockport High School where students and teachers explore and interact with cross-curricular content.

The STEM Hub is open to study hall students to come experience the latest technology tools LHS has to offer such as VR googles, 3D printers, and a filming studio.
