The goal of the Science Department is to insure that our graduates are scientifically literate and prepared to face the important societal decisions that will await them. Critical thinking and writing are stressed across the curriculum, and technology is used to enhance the learning process. We offer our students a solid foundation in the Sciences and hope to create in them a desire to delve further into these subjects. Each of our students has the opportunity to study Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics.  Introductory courses are complemented by Astronomy, Organic Chemistry, Advanced Placement Biology, Advanced Placement Chemistry, Advanced Placement Environmental Science, Advanced Placement Physics and Advanced 


We encourage and support a wide array of extra-curricular Science activities. Our students participate in the NYC Metropolitan and New York State Science Olympiad, Brain Bee Competition, Columbia Science Honors Program and AMNH Research Program.
