Vision and Purpose
Vanguard’s Science Department prepares students to be independent thinkers and strong critical thinkers through an innovative, student-centered curriculum. After completing Robotics in the 9th grade, students move onto the biological sciences in a year-long Living Environment course. During their Junior and Senior years, students take their choice of semester long science courses that include Epidemiology, Physics, Biopsychology, Chemistry, and Consumer Chemistry. These courses culminate in portfolio presentations that the students must complete to graduate from Vanguard.
