Science Program

In the primary grades, FOSS (Full Option Science System) is used.  FOSS utilizes various kits to help students learn scientific concepts in an interesting, hands-on-way.  Examples of FOSS kits used are, "Plants", "Animals", "Balance and Motion", "Air and Weather", and "Solids and Liquid", to name a few.  Foss engages students in inquiry.  Students develop an understanding of science concepts through their own investigations and analysis, using laboratory equipment supplied in the kits, student readings, and interactive technology.  Students learn to engage in logical thinking and decision-making skills appropriate to their age level.
