Science/Family & Consumer Sciences

The Lemont High School Science and Family & Consumer Sciences Department believes that students should develop the following characteristics:
• Problem solving skills
• Focus on scientific inquiry
• Mastery of material aligned with state standards

Courses offered within the Science and Family & Consumer Sciences Department curriculum are aligned with state standards, and help students learn through hands-on laboratory experiments, classroom discussions, authentic assessments and technology.

Based on abilities and course level, students are expected to:
• Participate in laboratory experiments
• Work within the framework of scientific inquiry
• Take advantage of an array of courses with rigorous and differentiated curricula
• Utilize critical thought
• Develop a knowledge base that they can use as technology continues to advance

Grading Standards: Student grades are determined based on their performance on classwork, laboratory experiments and written assessments.

Note: College-bound students who are interested in science and technological fields are encouraged to enroll in Biology Honors as freshmen and concurrently in AP Physics I and Chemistry Honors as sophomores, in order to take advantage of the department’s numerous electives in their final two years. Based on placement exam scores, other freshmen typically are enrolled in Integrated Science as freshmen, and are encouraged to enroll in Physics as sophomores and Chemistry as juniors.
