Mission Statement

The mission of the Lisle High School Science Department is to promote life-long learning and acquisition of knowledge through the use of science and engineering practices.  The student’s classroom experience will encourage the development of intellectual curiosity and scientific literacy.  The department provides effective and challenging curriculum and instruction based on the Next Generation Science Standards.  Science teachers at Lisle High School consistently utilize best practices to deliver the curriculum, including cooperative learning, guided practice, independent practice, laboratory experiences, modeling, problem-based learning, real-world applications, and use of technology.

The department offers courses in the life sciences, the physical sciences, and Earth and space science as well as three Advanced Placement courses in biology, chemistry, and environmental science.  The courses are sequential and intend to prepare students for college and beyond.  Most college admissions criteria include a minimum of at least three credits in laboratory science.  Students who are planning careers in science, engineering, health, or technical fields should strongly consider three or four years of science.
