Middle School Science
In middle school our science classes are divided by content. 6th grade is Physical Science, 7th is Life Science and 8th is Earth Science. All three of the classes are a mix of traditional educational methods which include reading, writing, group work, project-based assessments, demonstrations, cross-curricular activities, and appropriate field trips. Activities include time honored favorites such as engineering an egg drop apparatus, a trip to the zoo, and launching model rockets high into the air. Diversity and inquiry are the driving points in our science classes. Students will not only master scientific methods of inquiry and subject matter but will also advance in those tools needed for future success, such as note taking, reading for comprehension, inference, teamwork, leadership and social skills. Faith is an important part of our classroom, understanding that our Faith and science coexist is something we strive for with all our students.
