Hackley’s Upper School Science program begins by introducing ninth grade students to physics as a foundational science.
The Hackley School Science Department strives to instill a love of science in its students and to encourage curiosity about how the world works. Graduates of the Hackley science program will have strong critical thinking skills. They will have the ability to research, understand and critically analyze advances in science and technology, and the ability to devise and carry out a scientific experiment. While all Hackley students take physics, chemistry, and biology, the department also offers a wide array of electives and AP Courses. The Hackley science department also offers an independent research program for students particularly interested in delving deep into scientific research.
