We are surrounded by technology and the products of science every day. Public policy decisions that affect every aspect of our lives are based in scientific evidence. And, of course, the immensely complex natural world that surrounds us illustrates infinite scientific concepts. As students grow up in an increasingly technologically and scientifically advanced world, they need to be scientifically literate to succeed.

Three units of Science are required for graduation, one year of life science, one year of physical science and one year of general science.
