The scientific process, chemistry, characteristics of life and genetics are the central concepts studied in the 7th grade science curriculum.

The 8th Grade Science curriculum is centered around four main topics: physical science, astronomy, geology, fossils and geologic time.   The earth's weather and regional climate are also part of the curriculum and explored on a relevancy timeline.

Lab safety procedures and continued reinforcement of metric system measurement are followed throughout the year.
