Curriculum Snapshot

LOWER SCHOOL science focuses on process: making observations, asking questions, setting up experiments, and analyzing data for patterns. Classes are small and are grounded in direct experience.

MIDDLE SCHOOL students start to weave foundational principles in biology, chemistry, and physics into project-based, problem-focused classes.

UPPER SCHOOL students take classes in biology, chemistry, and physics in a sequence that best suits their interests and learning styles. Students can also branch into upper-level electives that are wide ranging, from gravitational astrophysics to biotechnology.
