The Sciences at JQUS
Consistent with the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, instruction in science will focus on the relevance of science in the lives of the students. Students will have opportunities to explore the connections between science and their everyday life.
In addition, students will learn to use the appropriate scientific vocabulary and language when communicating scientific ideas orally and in writing. The topics covered from grades 6 to 12 will include Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics among many other science topics. Students will also be challenged through classroom presentations, lab activities, project based learning as well as teacher developed interdisciplinary units with other subjects.
