In grades 9 and 10 compulsory science courses students are provided with diverse opportunities to develop foundational skills and attitudes through a survey of general scientific principles and concepts.  In grades 11 and 12 students have the option of specializing in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses.  As students develop their scientific literacy there is an increasing focus on inquiry through laboratory investigations and research projects.  Students entering into grade 11 who have demonstrated an interest in Chemistry or Physics and a high level of academic achievement in science and math may, by recommendation of their teacher, be invited into honours programming.  Honours courses offer students a first year university equivalent experience through a greater focus on mathematical manipulation of variables, conceptual understanding of scientific theories and models, and additional laboratory investigations and inquiry activities.
