Mission Statement


The goal of the NR Science Department is to create scientific experiences that encourage the development of intellectual curiosity and scientific literacy.  Our teachers work to motivate and teach students to approach the world by incorporating critical thinking, problem solving, and real-world application of science concepts into every classroom.

In addition to courses in Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics, students may also take courses offered through the Advanced Placement program, as well as receive college credit through our college partners Rockland Community College and St. Thomas Aquinas.

The following sequence charts will help you identify the science courses offered at NRHS.  Each sequence is specifically designed to allow students the opportunity to pursue areas of science which they will find challenging and will begin their path to success.
