The K-8 Science Department is responsible for coordinating the student learning, planning, implementation, management and evaluation of the K-8 science program including: curriculum development; staff development; materials purchase; monitoring; dissemination; integration; and articulation with other disciplines.
The High School Science Department serves all students by presenting a well-rounded, sequential and content-rich program in a stimulating and challenging manner. Each course is designed to have students learn about the physical world in which they live. Skills involving observation, critical thinking, effective verbal and written communication, manipulation of equipment, and applying technology are woven throughout the curricular fabric.
Science Program Review
Every curriculum and program area is involved in a continuous Program Review process. Phase I and Phase II of Program Review include an examination of the current state of the program/curriculum area and the development of an action plan for program improvement. Implementation of the action plan and on-going data gathering are the work of Phase III/IV. Links to Phase I and II reports and presentations to the School Committee are provided below.
