The middle school (grades 6-8) science students follow the curriculum of the Milford School District. They’ll be studying the environment, force and motion, chemistry, geology, astronomy and other topics from life and physical sciences. They will also be participating in a physical education program, including time outside (weather-appropriate) and in the gym playing such games as frisbee, kickball, basketball and scooter hockey.
The students in Physical science will study matter, atoms, the Periodic table, forces and motion, astronomy and Earth science, thereby coming to understand and appreciate the wonders of the physical world and Universe.
