As seniors, students are invited to take a number of different electives where they can enhance the skills acquired from the lower level classes. We hope that students will expand their content knowledge and strengthen their ability to critically analyze scientific concepts. Senior electives are also designed to prepare students for the increased demands of college science classes.
As a general goal, we want our classes to train students to be effective critical thinkers. At every level, students will be presented with scientific concepts and asked to apply them to novel situations through inquiry activities and lab practicals. Students are encouraged to collaborate with classmates and work in cooperative groups.
