The New England Academy Middle School Science Curriculum is an integrated program designed around teaching the overarching concepts in biology, earth science, physics and chemistry.  This broad base will engage students’ curiosity and develop overall science literacy to apply in more in-depth classes at the high school level.

Freshman and sophomore students at New England Academy are immersed in a two year Biology sequence.  The courses include the cornerstones of Biology and extended studies in Issues and Decision Making, Biotechnology, and Forensics.  This two year study will prepare students at New England Academy to take the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment in the area of Biology.  Upper level students have course offerings including Earth Science, Physics, and Chemistry.

Students can access McDougal-Littell’s www.CLASSZONE.com for resources, games, test review, and internet activities for Integrated Science, and Earth Science textbooks.

More information about the Integrated Science, Earth Science and Chemistry textbooks, direct correlations to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and current research can be found at www.mcdougallittell.com.
