Based on the recommendation of the National Science Foundation, Oakwood High School offers a science course sequence beginning with Conceptual Physics for freshman. Students are then able to apply their understanding of conceptual physics to more complex subjects such as Chemistry and Biology. Oakwood High School strives to provide science curriculum that is both engaging and hands-on, so that students will enjoy science, while they develop their abilities to think critically, interpret data, and work cooperatively. By expanding the curriculum with various enrichment activities, students will develop a better understanding of abstract scientific concepts. Elective opportunities and field trips are available for students to pursue various endeavors in the fields of science.
