Science

The Scituate Public Schools science program provides students with a rigorous and varied curriculum that allows students an opportunity to experience science aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Science, Technology, and Engineering. As noted by the Department of Secondary and Elementary Education, "Our world has never been so complex, and scientific and technological reasoning have never been so necessary to make sense of it all. It is self-evident that science, technology, and engineering (STE) are central to the lives of all Massachusetts citizens when they analyze current events, make informed decisions about healthcare, or decide to support public development of community infrastructure. By the end of grade 12, all students must have an appreciation for the wonder of science, possess sufficient knowledge of science and engineering to engage in public discussions on related issues, and be careful consumers of scientific and technological information and products in their everyday lives."

Students must complete twelve credits in lab sciences to be eligible for graduation.  All students experience biology in the 9th grade and may choose from a variety of options as they progress through the program.
