The Science Department believes that science
students at Wayland High School have two primary needs. The first is the
need to become independent learners. In a rapidly changing world it is
imperative that students have not only the intellectual tools to pursue
information and knowledge, but also a desire to inform themselves about
the world around them.
A second need is for students to
become functional members of the global community. As the world becomes
more dependent on people working together to solve mutual problems, our
students need to have the skills and competence to find successful
niches in the global community and feel a responsibility to that
community. While addressing the need to liberally educate all students,
the science program at the High School must at the same time provide
appropriate fundamentals to those students interested in pursuing
science career paths.
The Science Department has established a
set of broad objectives that will meet the needs of our students. The
science curriculum reflects these objectives and strives to meet the
goals inherent in these objectives.
