Welcome to Science!

" Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes & wishes,
where we face it as free beings admiring, asking & observing,
there we enter the realm of Art & Science."~Albert Einstein
Council Rock Schools shall teach, challenge, and support every student to realize his or her maximum potential and acquire the knowledge and skills to become a scientifically literate citizen. An understanding of science makes it possible for an individual to comprehend the natural world and appreciate its diversity and beauty. Scientific literacy enables the student to use scientific principles and processes in making personal decisions and to participate in discussions of scientific issues that affect society. A sound scientific background strengthens skills such as creative problem solving, critical thinking, working cooperatively in teams, using technology effectively, and valuing life-long learning.
As a leader in educational excellence, in partnership with the community, the Council RockSchool District will provide the means by which each student shall understand the fundamental concepts of the major branches of science (biological, chemical, physical, and earth sciences); show proficiency in the application of the process of science; demonstrate the ability to use modern electronic technologies; and relate science and technology to real-world situations. Furthermore, each student shall understand the biotic and abiotic interrelationships of the environment, and recognize that quality of life is an outcome of the activities of mankind in relationship with the environment.
