Abbott Middle School provides a high-quality, rigorous science education that supports students work in English-Language Arts and Mathematics. Our science program seeks to prepare all students – not just those interested in careers in science and technology- for success in high school courses, college and careers. Classes are designed to help students become self-directed, collaborative, critical and creative thinkers who effectively solve problems and communicate their ideas. Teachers work to support student learning of not just content, but ways of thinking that are applicable in many areas of learning and life. In Abbott’s Science Department we prioritize skills that help students analyze problems, draw conclusions, and apply their content knowledge to the challenges at hand. Through this integrated learning, we hope all our students will develop into science-proficient, responsible citizens who make informed, ethical decision to improve their world.
