Our STEM Department brings our students to the forefront of scientific thinking, which guides and shapes technology as it grows to meet the increasing demands of a new world vision. STEM classes foster curiosity and analytical thinking, encouraging students to imagine, innovate, and create. Our core courses in Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics build confidence and competence, providing a solid foundation from which students’ understanding can grow. Having developed these building blocks using the principles of the scientific method—inquiry, observation, data collection, analysis—students are well positioned to become creators and investigators and not just consumers. Students’ educational experiences are enhanced by more specialized elective courses like Anatomy, Environmental Science, Engineering, Programming, Robotics, and Oceanology—advanced courses that will help our students become the problem solvers of tomorrow.

We strive to integrate technology into every aspect of our curriculum, providing students with tangible artifacts of their learning, preparing students for the problems they will face, and introducing them to the methodology they will need in the future.
