Our Life Sciences program takes advantage of the wealth of both wild and domestic life at our school. Students observe the life cycle of ducks, chickens, preying mantis, butterflies, and other insects. In addition, students study how various native and non-native plants and animals interact within the environment — studying predator versus prey, the effect of invasive species, and more. Students take a close look at nature, studying cells, plant debris, fungi, and more under the microscope.
Elementary Life Sciences is designed for students performing at a 1st – 3rd grade level in mathematics and language arts. Students must also have a NWEA MAP Reading > 190 by the fall semester to enroll in this program.
Advanced Life Sciences is designed for students performing at a 4th – 6th grade level in mathematics and language arts. Students must also have an NWEA MAP Reading >115 to enroll in this program.
