Welcome to the Science Department, a hub of exploration, discovery, and intellectual curiosity. Our department is dedicated to fostering a deep understanding of the natural world and the scientific principles that govern it.  Our curriculum goes beyond traditional teaching methods by incorporating ADI, a dynamic framework that places critical thinking, collaborative exploration, and evidence-based reasoning at the heart of scientific learning.

*** New Course!!!!

We are excited to introduce a new subject to our curriculum for the 2023-24 term: Genetics. This course offers a comprehensive exploration of genetic principles while delving into the world of biotechnological advancements, where scientific discovery meets real-world applications. You'll explore the intricacies of DNA, the blueprint of life, and uncover the mysteries behind the diversity and unity of all living organisms. 


For graduation, students shall earn at least four (4) units of credit in laboratory based science courses consisting of one (1) unit of a Physical Science or Physics, one (1) unit of Biology, one (1) unit of either Chemistry, Earth Science, Environmental Science or an AP course and one (1) additional science unit. The fourth science unit may be used to meet both the science and elective requirements.
