The Science curriculum are generated from Core Knowledge, which uses a spiral method of teaching, where the content is taught in one grade at that level and then revisited again three years later, with more details and age-appropriate content. Core Knowledge has the advantage that the curriculum is there, but the lessons are not. Teachers are allowed creativity in creating their own lessons based on the curriculum.
In Science, students will perform experiments and participate in activities to learn about the science units. From kindergarten through 8th grade, students learn about the scientific method and inquiry process through an annual science fair where all students participate. Field trips and community involvement is core to our Science curriculum and is one of our fundamental elements to the program of instruction.
