The Science Department of Notre Dame High School strives for excellence in science education through investigative research, laboratory activities, and collaborative dialogue among peers. Upon completion of a minimum of three years of science, students demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental concepts of the diverse fields of study within the physical and life sciences.
Through science education, Notre Dame provides each student with a rich academic background, an appropriate sense of self, an opportunity for growth, and a respect for the spiritual dignity of all persons. Students are equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in higher education and future careers in science. All aspects of planning are aligned with the Mission Statement of Notre Dame High School.
