The science curriculum at Littleton High School is designed to address Littleton High School’s mission that all students will learn and achieve at a high level. “We believe that students should be exposed to the process of scientific inquiry so they can acquire and interpret scientific knowledge, and begin to realize the wider applicability of scientific problem-solving methods.” By making the laboratory the focal point of learning, rather than a lecture-reading method, we seek to foster students' appreciation for the scientific process. ** The science experience begins with all freshman students enrolled in Biology. After the successful completion of freshman Biology, course selections should reflect a student’s ability, interests, and future educational and career plans. The student may choose to be introduced to the content and methods of several of the sciences or may wish to concentrate, doing advanced work in one or two of the sciences. All courses and levels are designed to vary in rigor, breadth and depth of coverage. By graduation, all students will have the opportunity to master the following fundamental goals:
**In our efforts to develop and present a science curriculum reflecting best practices of high-performing high schools, the Littleton High School science department strives to keep abreast of the curricula of strong science programs in our surrounding communities. As a reflection of these inquiries, portions of the introduction to the LHS science curriculum have been excerpted and adapted from a similar document authored by the Acton-Boxborough science department.
