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.
