Science

Pre-K 3 - 8th Grade | Ms. Edelmann |
All Academy students benefit from our science program LabLearner™, a 100% research-based, comprehensive, hands-on science education system aimed at illuminating and clarifying science in a way that is most understood and retained by students. Our Science curriculum combines scientific evidence with proven classroom best practices to create a science program that is easily absorbed and applied. The program aims to promote interaction and experimentation in a laboratory setting to encourage diverse learning and thinking strategies, and foster a community atmosphere of learning!
