  • Welcome to the 

    Office of Science 






    The Office of Science embraces the philosophy of A Framework of K-12 Science Education (2012). We envision students engaged in science learning through the Three Dimensional Framework of Science: (i.e. science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas). 


    The mission of the Office of Science is to provide content rich, inquiry-based, hands-on student centered science experiences where students are prepared for college and career.


    Atlanta Public Schools goals for science education are to educate students who are able to:

    a)     experience the richness and excitement of knowing about and understanding the natural world;

    b)     use appropriate habits of mind and understandings of the nature of science and scientific principles in making personal decisions;

    c)      engage intelligently in public discourse and debate about matters of scientific and technological concern; and

    d)     increase their economic productivity and personal responsibility through their knowledge, understanding, and skills as environmentally, scientifically, and technologically literate persons in their careers and personal endeavors.
