Science Division

The Biology and Physical Science departments offer a wide range of classes to meet the needs of our students.  Our classes in life and physical sciences (Chemistry and Physics) prepare students to complete their various vocational programs, to enter a professional training program in Allied Health, or to continue their education at an institution of higher learning.  Our courses give students the opportunity to establish a firm foundation of scientific inquiry by developing crucial skills in observation, analysis, and critical thinking.  With these skills students are prepared to pursue challenging and rewarding careers and educational goals.
