Phillipsburg High School Science Department
The Phillipsburg High School science department is comprised of an excellent team of professionals who are committed to engaging students in inquiry-based activities through active learning. Teachers collaborate in designing lessons that integrate technology, ask students to be creative thinkers, and provide students with an opportunity to communicate their understanding of scientific information through technical literacy activities. The science curriculum is designed to offer students experiences to investigate scientific phenomena stemming from the performance expectations of New Jersey’s Students Learning Standards for Science. Our science program is grounded in the “all standards for all students” philosophy, seeking to prepare our graduates for success in college and careers. A Phillipsburg graduate will be able to effectively analyze, interpret, problem-solve and communicate science as a way to benefit society.
