Science – FOSS program or Full Option Science System is used in grades K-5, which follows the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), to engaged students in hands-on learning in science.
The teaching and learning philosophy was developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley.
The active-learning science curricula provides tools and strategies to engage students and teachers in enduring experiences and higher level thinking that leads to deeper understanding of the natural and designed worlds.
The program includes STEM, earth, life, and physical science. Through a series of investigations, students cover 3 units each year. Our science teachers have been trained at UC Berkeley and follow the newest and most updated FOSS edition.
