  • Middle school science courses assist students in becoming life-long learners who grow in their understanding of the world.  Science is everywhere and understanding how it plays a role in our daily lives gives students a great foundation for any career they choose.  Students are engaged in active learning by making real-world connections of scientific topics that are interconnected and multifaceted.  Students are given the opportunity to expand their skills in scientific explanations, methods, and critical thinking by practicing in laboratory investigations. Each grade level has its own standards from each science domain that build upon the learning progression.
