Science

We are very excited for the 2014-2015 school year. We have three new teachers in the department and are currently renovating and updating our laboratories. It is our goal to have them completed by December. Our mission is to adequately prepare your child to either further their education at the college level or to enter the work force. Additionally, we hope to teach all of our students on the importance of science in their every day lives.

Course Descriptions

Anatomy and Physiology is the study of the parts of the human body and they work. This study includes exploring an overview of the human body, the biochemical composition of the human body, the different systems that make up the human body, and research about treatment of disorders and diseases that affect each system of the human body.

Chemistry is a laboratory-based full year course. This course places emphasis on developing good laboratory and problem solving skills especially in the areas of equilibrium, kinetics, environmental chemistry, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, chemical analysis, solution chemistry, and general chemical reactions. Chemistry in the "real" world is introduced on a continuing basis. This course is designed for students who have an interest in science or who have career interests which require a strong chemistry background: medicine, engineering, or science majors.

In Biology I you will learn biochemistry, ecology, cell theory, genetics, evolution and classification. In this class you will discover the fascinating ways in which the worth around us works.

Biology II is a laboratory-based course that continues the study of life. The units studied include biochemical life processes, molecular basis of heredity, natural selection, behavior patterns, and advanced classification and organism studies. Laboratory activities, research, the use of technology, and the effective communication of results through various methods are integral components of this course.

Physical science is a laboratory-based full year course. This course consists of an introduction to physics and chemistry. In this course, students will develop problem solving abilities and understand and use the scientific method as well as interpret scientific data. This course covers areas such as motion, energy, matter, and the characteristics of matter. This course is designed for students who have an interest in science or who have career interests which require a strong chemistry or physics background: medicine, engineering, or science majors.
