Curriculum > Science

General Science /Middle School

Students in grades5–8 continue to learn and build on their elementary foundation through NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). They explore Physical, Earth and Space, and Life Science using multiple hands-on activities that are designed to activate and use prior knowledge and higher order thinking skills. When integrating NGSS into the curriculum, students are able to meet international science standards. Each performance expectation integrates all three dimensions; engineering practice, a disciplinary core idea, and a crosscutting concept. Each set of performance expectations lists connections to other ideas within Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts. Thus, encircling students in every aspect of their educational life and enabling them to be competitive in the 21st century.  

Science /High School

Physics, Chemistry, and Biology in high school are aligned with NGSS, and challenging content has been added to enrich the curriculum. Thus, equipping students with the knowledge and background skills to meet college level entry requirements. 

Biology

The fundamental focus of biology in high school is for students to acquire knowledge in how and why the survival of all living things depends upon a fragile balance between themselves and the world in which they live. Students are introduced to the techniques of laboratory investigations as a vital source of learning as well as critical thinking skills. The course examines the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and classification of all living things. 

Physics

Physics in high school is designed to explore the fundamental physical theories and concepts that will enrich the students’ view of the world around them. Mathematics and physical sciences are considered as prerequisites for this course. General areas of study include concepts of mechanics, motion, heat, light, sound, magnetism, and electricity. Students will develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, which are practiced during laboratory activities.

Chemistry

High school chemistry introduces an advanced level of concepts. Students will cover the essential topics to have a firm foundation of the chemistry they will experience in everyday life. The course includes a review of measurement and the metric system, study of matter and its changes, study of atomic structure, exploring the periodic table and its meaning, study of various types of chemical bonding, and builds the foundation of organic chemistry. Conceptual and mathematical understanding of chemistry is emphasized. Critical thinking and test-taking skills, hands on activities, problem based learning, and practical lab skills are incorporated consistently throughout the course.
