In Cincinnati Public Schools, we believe that our students' futures are bright. We strive to provide a high quality educational experience for every student, regardless of circumstances. By the end of high school, we envision that our students will graduate with proficiency in science to:

  • Know, use, and interpret scientific explanations of the natural world;
  • Generate and evaluate scientific evidence and explanations, distinguishing science from pseudoscience;
  • Understand the nature and development of scientific knowledge
  • Participate productively in scientific practices and discourse.

In conjunction with the Ohio Department of Education, our student-centered goals for science education include helping students:

  • Experience excitement, interest and motivation to learn about phenomena in the natural and physical world.
  • Come to generate, understand, remember, and use concepts, explanations, arguments, models, and facts related to science.
  • Manipulate, test, explore, predict, question, observe, and make sense of the natural and physical world.
  • Reflect on science as a way of knowing; on processes, concepts and institutions of science; and on their own process of learning about phenomena.
  • Participate in scientific activities and learning practices with others, using scientific language and tools.
  • Think about themselves as science learners and develop an identity as someone who knows about, uses, and sometimes contributes to science.
