Science

Philosophy

Science in the Issaquah School District incorporates the instruction and application of concepts and principals in properties, structures and changes in the three major science disciplines of physical science, earth and space science, and life science.

In our classrooms, students experience labs where they actively apply scientific ideas, skills, and investigative processes. Our approach includes inquiry science as a teaching and learning model that parallels the work that scientists do, the way scientists uncover knowledge, and how they solve problems. As teachers guide students to approach and solve problems like a scientist, the students gain skills that are invaluable to other academic disciplines and their everyday life.

In October 2013, Washington adopted the Washington State 2013 K-12 Science Learning Standards. Curriculum adoptions and scope and sequences support the 2013 standards.
