US Science

The Science Department’s main objective is to prepare students to be responsible citizens, environmental stewards and decision makers. We seek to produce graduates that hold well-informed and thoughtful opinions. We hope to impart to our students both an understanding of and a sense of wonder about the natural world. The relevance of the dynamic role of science in society is central to a Pace science education. A foundation for further study is obtained through the teaching of problem solving, experimental design and conceptual understanding.

Teaching physics as a first course exposes students to the common concepts that govern all physical systems and prepares students for the study of chemistry and biology. Honors-level courses in these areas offer extra depth of study and independent work in specific areas. In addition, the elective and Advanced Placement programs provide students avenues for enrichment in specific areas.
