Science

Science is a field that thrives on scrutiny and, through the process of “peer-review,” enjoys a level of reliability not achievable in other less quantifiable disciplines. Ultimately, sound science should be the basis for good decision-making. Given the backdrop of the challenges we face: climate change, global disease, cyber-terrorism, heathcare inequities, among others – a foundational understanding of science is critical to support an informed citizenry prepared to participate in the creative and rational design of a more just, equitable, and sustainable future. The practice of science at Belmont Hill fosters skill development in multiple areas, including inquiry, critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, communication, adaptation, creativity, and resilience.
