Highlights of Science Instruction at AF

1.) We have whole heartedly embraced the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and have moved rapidly with the support of cool external partners like the Dana Center and BSCS to transition across K-12.

2.) We have a vertically aligned K-12 science program so that content builds from each grade starting in Kinder.

3.) We prioritize the full inquiry nature of science and science as something students should do, not something done to them or the mere acquisition of factual knowledge.
