    NOTE TO PARENTS: If your student makes any grade below a 70 on a test or assignment they are eligible to come in for tutoring followed by an opportunity to raise their grade up to a 70!  Please do not hesitate to encourage your students to make use of this opportunity!  In the past we have often tracked them down and forced this "chance" upon them but new regulations are now in place which put the responsibility squarely in the hands of the students. Please help them to see the importance of being responsible!

     

    COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:

    On Level: The study of Science in grade 7 is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment. At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.

    Pre-AP: Seventh grade Pre-AP/IB Science is a course designed to prepare students for advanced Science at the high school level, including Pre-AP and Pre-IB courses. The study of science in this course is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment at a higher level of rigor. At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.
