Primary School


 The Primary School science curriculum develops in each girl an understanding of science concepts and processes essential in today's global society.



  • The curriculum conveys the importance of science in everyday life and provides an environment where problem solving and critical thinking are nourished. We seek to challenge the mind of each individual, offering a wide variety of investigative science opportunities.

  • Teachers build upon the natural curiosity of young students and instill a love of science through exploration of scientific topics.

  • Students develop the ability to communicate methods and solutions and seek to observe and report accurately. Experiences in the lab foster curiosity about the world and the skills and desire to discover the unknown.

  • The scientific method and the skills of observation, recording data, making predictions, and synthesizing information are integrated throughout units of study.

  • A rich field trip program and extensive use of outdoor areas reinforce and extend the classroom learning experiences.

  • Students are exposed to many ways of learning in all domains of science: nonfiction reading, experiments, projects, writing, discussion, websites, technology, and peer presentations. The goal is to instill in each student a love of science and the desire to become a scientifically literate citizen.
