We believe that the science program should strive to help meet the needs of all students. We should prepare individuals to use science to improve their lives and cope with an increasingly technological society. We attempt to produce informed citizens who are prepared to deal responsibly with science related social issues. We make students aware of the nature and scope of a wide variety of science and technology-related careers. For those students who aspire to scientific careers, we endeavor to provide the knowledge appropriate to their needs.
In order to fulfill these needs, we revive and sustain in our students the young child's enthusiastic curiosity about his/her environment. Science is experimental by nature and inherently involves experimentation in the classroom.
As educators, our goal is to foster scientific literacy in students that goes beyond the regurgitation of facts, figures, and word meanings. Our students must understand the process of scientific discovery and its effects on society. A successful science program should insure that all students see the need for competency in science and understand that science is a tool for solving everyday problems.
