WISH A Whole Scholar
Approach to Education

Practices » Science



WISH educators use research-based science curriculum incorporating FOSS (Full Option Science System), PLTW (Project Lead the Way), and their own innovative materials to inspire our young scientists.  Science is a creative and analytic enterprise, made active by our human capacity to think. Scientific knowledge advances when scientists observe phenomena, think about how they relate to what is known, test their ideas in logical ways, and generate explanations that show an understanding of our physical and engineered world. 

Science is a discovery activity, a process for producing new knowledge. That is why hands-on exploration is essential to our science curriculum, allowing students to more fully comprehend scientific concepts by actively conducting their own investigations and analyses.
