The Greenwich Public Schools Science Program is designed to promote best practices of science and engineering education aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) while fostering interdisciplinary connections between Science, Language Arts, Math and Technology. The focus of the new NGSS curriculum is aligned with the Vision of the Graduate and embodies a student-centered inquiry approach. Grounded in the NGSS authentic science and engineering practices, students will engage in rigorous, real-world issues and with state-of-the art design challenges.
Reaffirming the U.S. Department of Education’s position, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education in the Greenwich Public Schools recognizes that student success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, and that it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. Thus, STEM education for all students is fundamental for college and career readiness and to develop as productive members of society.
