MHS Course Offerings and Descriptions
The MHS science department’s goal is to prepare students for a future in which science and technology will continue to play an increasing and integral role in the lives of individuals and society. We will work hard to develop these students as science thinkers by developing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. By implementing a comprehensive Next Generation Science Curriculum that includes inquiry-based, hands-on learning, we hope to give students the skills to continue growing as a scientifically literate citizen. Whether entering a profession in the science field or not, the skills acquired within courses in the science department will transfer and help to make students successful in any path they choose.
In this department courses primarily emphasize these capacities from our Vision of a Graduate:
- Critical Thinking: Analyze and evaluate ideas, claims, and/or representations to construct meaning
- Self-Direction and Task Management: Complete task(s) through the development of timeline and plan, monitor progress
- through a feedback loop to meet designated timelines
- Communication: Express ideas and share information to effectively engage an audience for a given purpose and task
