Science PK-12

Mission and Vision for Science

The natural-born scientist in every SFUSD student will be tapped and nurtured so that they graduate from high school scientifically and ecologically literate.

This will be realized through rigorous and engaging science education connected to life-worthy and lifelong learning that fosters 21st century dispositions and skills (identifying problems & designing solutions, observation & questioning, analyzing evidence, creativity, communication, and collaboration). ​
