Science Department

The Science Department offers a variety of courses preparing students for Vermont’s High School Grade Expectations which reflect the standards of the Vermont Framework of Standards and Learning Objectives. The department highly recommends that the required 3.0 graduation credits are completed by the end of their junior year.
