The major goal of the Science Department is to help students understand and master the concepts that form the foundations of science. The Science Department offers 14 different courses to serve the multiple pathways which students can follow in their high school experience. Each course challenges students with a variety of learning techniques. Classroom instruction includes lecture/discussion, lab investigations, learning stations, demonstrations, and cooperative learning, all directed toward problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

Modern and well-equipped lab and classroom facilities compliment a curriculum, which encourages a well-rounded student who will graduate with a background rooted in the chemical, physical, biological, and earth sciences. The Science Department staff is dedicated to the concept that science education plays a pivotal role in developing mature, clear-thinking, young adults .
