Middle School

The middle school science program consists of three units of study conducted in each grade including a unit each in life science, earth science, and physical science.  Teachers and students use both the consumable text and digital versions of the Science Fusion program as well as other resources with which teachers supplement their instruction.  Instruction emphasizes both the science concepts presented in the 2016 Massachusetts State Science, Technology, and Engineering Standards as well as the development of scientific practices and thinking.
