About Grades 6-12 Sciences
Science is a discipline that builds knowledge and skills over the years, culminating in a solid understanding of scientific principles and practices upon graduation. Students are required to take three years of science and must pass a Science MCAS exam in order to graduate.
The science and technology program is designed to produce scientifically literate students who will understand the scientific method and the tentative nature of scientific truth. They will learn some of the major concepts, laws, and theories of the various sciences.
The majority of students follow the sequence: Introductory Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. For students who are ready for greater rigor, the department offers honors courses each year.
Eighth grade students whose academic record is clearly superior will be invited to take Honors Physics in the ninth grade. Students who excel in any science class will be invited to take an honors course the following year.
