Science is a natural endeavor for middle school minds because everything can and should be questioned. Our goal is to initiate your child into what is possible in a fascinating field of study that requires both discipline and creativity. Your child will learn that science is a domain for explorers, and its frontier is endless in scope and time. Science classes at Sparhawk Middle School are designed to enthrall and inspire your child with the wonders of the natural world, while instructing them in the existing knowledge, facts, vocabulary, tools, and processes that are used by professional scientists.

Our science curriculum rotates through a three-year cycle that spans six domains of science: Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science, Astronomy, Biology, and "energy and transformation." Energy and Transformation includes electromagnetism, color, light, sound, lenses, mirrors, solar energy, electricity and electronics.
