Our Vision for Learning K-12

The Science Department of the Darien Public Schools is dedicated to providing a science program that piques students’ curiosity, captures their interest, and motivates their engagement while also promoting the understanding and application of science concepts and practices. The curriculum is designed to ensure that all students engage in essential experiences that reflect the intellectual rigor of inquiry, exploration and application in order to achieve at high standards of scientific literacy. By using students’ perceptions of the world around them, our program provides opportunities to expand, enhance, and modify the ways in which they view and make sense of the world.
