Science matters to us because:

The introduction of fundamental scientific principles provides students with a framework for exploring and understanding the world around them. The development of these skills, attitudes, and ways of thinking will guide and enhance their learning throughout their lives.

Our teachers say:

“One of the first things I noticed when I started teaching science at Touchstone is that the students learned for the joy of it! They asked questions because they were curious, not because it was going to be on a test.”
