The Science Department at MSSD strives to develop our students' ability to analyze situations and think logically. Students live in an advanced and highly technical world where they must constantly update their skills and knowledge to keep up with continual change. Throughout their lives, they will work with the products of science and technology. Our science classes will prepare them for that.
Science classes at MSSD provide students with the ability to acquire knowledge through the use of observation, hypothesis, theory, experimentation, and analysis. Students learn to apply scientific knowledge to issues that arise in everyday life. They learn about concepts of proof and evidence in order to understand new discoveries. They learn how science can be useful in looking at industrial, environmental, and ethical issues. They learn how to communicate ideas clearly.
