Science Department

In science, Pleasant View School’s goal is to foster an understanding and appreciation of the scientific method.

  • In Pre-K and the Elementary grades, an inquiry-based scientific program that provides students with a hands-on, experimental approach is used with the aim of giving students a deep understanding of scientific principles as well as an appreciation of the use of science in a way that makes science a fun and engaging project.
  • In the upper elementary grades, a strong emphasis is placed on conducting individual science projects as well as group laboratory work.
  • In the middle school, students are able to explore an in depth analysis of earth, life and physical sciences.
  • The high school program is college preparatory in nature with courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students are expected to graduate with one or two college-level science credits.
