Vanguard Science Department

At Vanguard High School, the science curricula consist of the following:

Graduation requirements in science include passing a minimum of 6 semester courses in science. In addition, students must also complete the Performance-Based Assessment Task (PBAT) graduation presentation in science. The graduation PBAT may include original science experiments or other major projects required in upper school (11/12th grade) classes. In January or June, if students meet the eligibility requirements, they may elect to present these projects for the graduation credit. These presentations are 
conducted in front of a committee of two teachers, a student, and -- in many cases -- an external evaluator or other expert. Students must present and pass the PBAT only once in order to fulfill this graduation requirement in science. Note that this is in lieu of the regents requirement of other schools.
