The Brockton High School Science program was designed to prepare students to approach, understand and overcome challenges in college, career and their personal lives. The STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields currently offer the greatest professional opportunities and are projected to increase further. Science underlies many political, personal and professional issues that impact our lives on a daily basis from the grocery store to the voting booth. Brockton High School students are prepared to engage with this world of ideas and will be prepared as the world changes throughout our lives. Our foundational belief is that science is for everyone.

We emphasize learning scientific concepts through the experimental and investigative process of science. Through this process, students learn problem solving and critical thinking skills that will be used throughout their lives both within and outside the sciences. Every student at BHS demonstrates this through their participation in our science fair. Students in our core program will take a class in Environmental Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students have the opportunity to enroll in our innovative four year, interdisciplinary biotechnology pathway. Beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, students will also have the opportunity to enroll in a brand new Science of Tomorrow pathway in Systems Thinking. This exciting pathway will help students evaluate and develop solutions to the world’s most complex problems. Many elective courses are provided to ensure that students can pursue their interests and be passionate about their education.

Brockton High School has made a commitment to modernizing the approaches to studying the world. Our state of the art biotechnology lab allows students to investigate the molecular basis of life with technology that is not even common in research universities. In all of our classes, students have the ability to measure in real time using digital probeware. We look forward to re-opening Brockton High School’s planetarium with a brand new digital Sci-Dome. This will be a cornerstone of building the STEM culture in Brockton for all of Brockton’s community members from 5 to 105 years old, emphasizing our foundational belief that science is for everyone.
