The aim of the science program is to encourage a child’s sense of wonder for the world about himself/herself. The major areas of study are life science, physical science, earth science, environmental science and conservation. The focus is on the scientific method, scientific inquiry, experimentation and hands-on activities. Cooperative learning is encouraged through group projects.

In grades 7 and 8 classes are divided to create small groups for discussion and experimentation. Texts are supported through videos, charts, graphs, computer software as well as newspapers and periodicals. This enables students to understand through varied activities, scientific information that is necessary for them to become intelligent, responsible citizens.
