The importance of science in modern living and the need for scientific literacy on the part of all citizens are widely accepted beliefs. The curriculum, therefore, is designed around multiple course offerings for students over a wide range of interests and abilities. Moreover, the curriculum reflects the educational demands for living in our scientific technological-industrialized society as well as the human values of this age.
We seek a balance among the traditional science disciplines, the personal use, the application of science and science as a means of solving current problems and shaping the future. The science courses are developed within the principles of mastery learning and are, therefore, organized by individual units with specific objectives. This philosophy helps create a science program that is well organized and enjoyable for students with clear expectations.
