Notre Dame offers a comprehensive STEM curriculum where critical thinking and analytical skills are encouraged by a question-oriented, problem-solving approach. We strongly believe that hands-on experience is central to science education, therefore, the laboratory component is strongly emphasized. Consistent with our school’s broader goals, the science curriculum addresses the role of women in science and the responsibility to utilize scientific knowledge within a moral values framework.
Science Courses Offered:
Science is Not Limited to the Classroom
The beautiful grounds of Notre Dame serve as a laboratory. On any given day, one might observe middle school science students launching rockets, a physics class measuring the strength of their raw egg delivery systems, the environmental science class taking soil samples for analysis, or the biology classes making dichotomous trees to compare local ecosystems.
