Middle School Science

  • The Peak to Peak Science Department seeks to create excitement for, and excellence in, the pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the natural world. Students are asked to approach scientific problems both critically and creatively, while developing a fundamental understanding of science as a thought process and applying those skills to real-world situations in all disciplines. Specifically, students will be encouraged to develop their abilities to interpret current events, both scientific and otherwise, using inquiry and logic-based thought. Science and technology go hand in hand in today’s world and an understanding of the technology behind modern living is essential to being successful in college and in most careers. For this reason, Peak to Peak expects each of its students to have facility with and an understanding of technology and its role in modern society.

    Incoming sixth graders will enroll in Life Science or Life Science Honors, depending on their math skills. Seventh graders will pursue either Earth Science or Earth Science Honors, depending on their math skills. Eighth graders will explore either Physical Science or Physical Science Honors, depending on their math skills.
