The Middle School Science curriculum focuses on the fundamental physical, biological, and chemical laws and processes in nature that interact to sustain us and all living things and that create the magnificent universe in which we live. Experimental investigations, inquiries, demonstrations, discussions, and group and independent projects help students construct their understanding and develop a sense of wonder about the world in which they live. Guiding questions called “through lines” focus the curriculum and encourage students, as they practice the scientific process, to apply what they are learning to the great issues of the day, such as habitat loss, diminishing biodiversity, food security, and climate change. Students pay special attention to the lessons they can learn from the extraordinary LEED platinum Middle School building, which encourages them to consider how to “let your life speak” by applying scientific knowledge to make the world a better place.
