Welcome to the Science Department Site!

It is the mission of the Aviation High School Science Department to provide students with a quality Science Education that not only meets, but exceeds the New York State Performance Standards and the Common Core Learning Standards. Our holistic approach to science education prepares young people to not only be responsible lifelong learners ready to take their place in the global society, but also to be college and career ready.

The Science Department is a vibrant, dynamic, caring and self-reflective entity.  We do not just teach Science, we teach students who are given the opportunity to become active and engaged participants in the learning process as they develop their science literacy and ability to use the scientific method.  Our mission is to not only develop an appreciation for the various science disciplines through real-world applications, but to also empower our students to transcend any perceived limitations which they might have.  Standards are high, but in a nurturing and supportive environment our students excel.
