Science



The study of science in PCD's Middle School focuses on students’ purposeful investigations of nature. As such, it offers students both opportunity and responsibility: opportunity to experience the excitement of discovery and responsibility to align those discoveries with the story that science has to tell. While students in science courses will be stimulated to challenge the "givens" and encouraged to think independently, such acting and thinking will need to be flexible enough to accommodate accepted, albeit counterintuitive, world views. As students aspire toward wisdom, the faculty hopes to have awakened in them a spirit of wonder and discipline which will be self sustaining—a spirit that recognizes and appreciates the logic, beauty and mystery of science.

Middle school science students have the opportunity to experience the excitement of discovery and responsibility to align those discoveries with the story that science has to tell.
