Science

It is essential in today's society that all students be prepared to be scientifically literate citizens. The West Irondequoit Central School District science program challenges students to become familiar with, and recognize the diversity and unity of the natural and physical world. Additionally, our science program moves students toward understanding key concepts and principles of science, as well as having a capacity for scientific thinking, and being able to use scientific knowledge and thought process for the good of the individual and of society.

The goals of West Irondequoit's science program include:

  • Developing a fundamental understanding of key concepts and unifying principles of science
  • Encouraging curiosity, creativity, collaboration and a passion to understand science
  • Actively engaging students through an inquiry approach to learning
  • Developing a deep understanding between what students learn and their own lives
  • Understanding the role of mathematics and technology in the fields of science

The West Irondequoit Science program includes the following strands:

  • Science as Inquiry
  • Earth and Space Science
  • Life Science
  • Physical Science
  • Science and Technology
  • Science in Personal and Social Perspectives
