The Science Department engages students daily in the methods of science by calling on them to ask questions, formulate hypotheses, design controlled procedures and analyze data.

Daily laboratory activities in grades 7 and 8 and two double periods per week in upper school biology, chemistry and physics help students develop an understanding of the process and skills of “doing” science. Drey Land, the school’s Ozark wilderness facility, serves as a freshman biology lab extension for the study of forest and stream ecosystems.
