The goal of science education is to prepare students to be responsible citizens in an increasingly complex and dynamic world. The Evergreen Park Community High School science curriculum provides students with the foundations to understand the inner workings of this world using scientific processes and concepts from all fields of earth science, biology, chemistry, and physics.
The Science Department not only looks to have students explore these areas, but also the interconnections between the disciplines using a student-centered approach, which allows for greater depth of understanding. This multi-disciplinary approach is based around the Next Generation Science Standards and promotes curiosity and builds content knowledge along with core science practices to develop scientifically literate citizens. We believe that students should be doing science in the classroom and promote collaboration and questioning as a way towards a better understanding of the field.
