Inspiring Curiosity

The Middle Science program at Kent School is an integrated approach to Earth, Physical, and Life Science which allows students to study each of those subjects in every year of Middle School. Chesapeake Bay Studies is incorporated throughout all of the topics. We believe this integrated approach provides students with a deeper acquisition of the key principles of Earth, Physical and Life Sciences and their inter-relatedness. All topics are supported by hands-on, project-based learning.
