The SHS Science Department believes that students should acquire scientific reasoning and thinking skills in order to understand the interconnections within the sciences and the interactions among science, technology, society, and the environment. This background empowers students to make informed, responsible decisions that affect their daily lives.
Science is a comprehensive process by which we continually refine our understanding of the world around us. The Science Department at SHS provides students the opportunity to actively construct knowledge by observing, questioning, investigating, analyzing, and communicating ideas. By offering a range of courses and using a variety of appropriate strategies and resources, the Science Department ensures that every student can experience both success and challenge in the classroom.
