Science & Technology

The study of classical subjects in science: biology, physics, chemistry, and geology begins with hands-on lessons in our Primary classrooms.

Beginning with sorting objects for the youngest student and extending to engaging in debates about climate change in Middle School, our Science curriculum provides students with many opportunities to focus on the process and issues of science: the study of life, the laws, and structure of the universe, and the work of scientists. Students learn to ask questions, follow a systematic process of observation, collect and analyze data, and conduct controlled experiments.

EACMSI recognizes that 21st-century classrooms integrate technology into the curriculum as a historical study component and a valuable learning tool. We aim to provide students with foundational knowledge and skills for innovation and a thorough understanding of the moral responsibilities accompanying technology use.

Technology use is incorporated into coursework with increased frequency, as is developmentally appropriate. By graduation from EACMSI, students are using spreadsheets and databases in math, earth science, and occupations and exploring programs like GarageBand in music. Teachers and students are using the Google Classroom platform to communicate about assignments and provide resources.
