In this academic area, students learn more than the basic knowledge about specific sciences; students learn the lifelong skill of approaching a problem in a scientific manner. In our technology-based society with its rapid rate of change, having a solid science background will be an essential asset for students to make informed decisions.
Using the Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering High School Standards, and Common Core Standards as guides and reinforcements for teaching practices, the Science Department:
Students in ninth grade will take discipline-specific Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams based on their enrollment in either Introductory Physics or Biology. Passing one of these exams is a graduation requirement of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
