Science

Science in Kindergarten through Fourth Grade consists of:

  • our teachers helping students work towards science literacy
  • building the desire and ability to pursue lifelong learning in science by teaching students to engage in their own learning
  • emphasizing the knowledge of fundamental concepts and themes, skills, and attitudes towards science
  • teaching our students to explore and discover the world around them
  • creating hypotheses, testing them through experimentation and observation, and drawing conclusions through analysis.
