Thank you for your interest in Besant Hill School.

Science

Besant Hill School offers a variety of stimulating and challenging college prep courses within the Science Department. Through the use of inquiry-based projects, lab experiments, and real-world applications, our students learn how to “think like a scientist.”

Science classes at Besant Hill School ask students to play an investigative role as they learn about the world around them. In every science class, students are encouraged to never stop questioning the unknown. Both physical and life sciences are offered so that students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and how it is constructed. The school’s sustainability initiatives are a common thread throughout all science courses and teach students the principles of environmental activism.

Our STEM Education Initiative

It is the goal of the BHS Science and Mathematics Departments to ensure that every student engages in problem-based learning investigations through daily classroom STEM instruction. Through our STEM education initiative, students learn how to think with a critical mind and approach realistic problems with a foundation in scientific and mathematics literacy. We provide learning both inside and outside of the classroom using computer programs and laboratory equipment which allows students to play a necessary and informed role in our modern technological society. Through our STEM initiative, it is our hope to enhance motivation, interest, and achievement among students.

My educational philosophy is closely aligned with Besant Hill School’s motto, Aun Aprendo – I am still learning.”  As an educator, it is a primary responsibility to inspire my students so that they may subscribe to the words of Michelangelo, “Grant that I may always aspire to more than I accomplish.”
