Incoming 8th Grade Students

Welcome to Science at the high school! 
As you may have already seen on the Science Department home page, our goal is to promote and prepare future stewards of our planet who can participate and contribute to an ever-expanding global community. 
During the 8th grade parent night, representatives comprised of students and teachers, are present to showcase the following:
- The 9-12 Science program, appropriate progression and elective opportunities
- A peek into specific applications and technologies that fuel digital learning
- Question and answer formats regarding sequence and courses (please refer to the 2016-17 Program of Studies for the most current information)

Due to the state adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards, mandatory science course sequencing has changed in order to prepare the incoming class of 2021 for the NEW state science assessment, which will be administered in 2020 (11th grade). As a result, the accelerated science sequence is no longer an option. Students will still have opportunity to incorporate the AP sciences and electives into their schedules.
