The High School Science curriculum grows and transforms as much as the students’ capacity for thoughtful engagement. It is at first explicit and concrete in the freshman year, dealing with easily observed and recognized structures and functions and then gradually grows in complexity, finally culminating in the senior year with multifaceted interrelationships and shifts toward the implicit and more hidden aspects of the human being and the world. It is an age-appropriate curriculum that instills in students the ability to observe astutely, think rigorously, and actively interpret scientific phenomena.
