Welcome to the SFUSD Science Department
Our Mission & Vision
The natural-born scientist in every SFUSD student will be tapped and nurtured so that they graduate from high school scientifically and ecologically literate.
This will be realized through rigorous and engaging science education connected to life-worthy and lifelong learning that fosters 21st century dispositions and skills (identifying problems & designing solutions, observation & questioning, analyzing evidence, creativity, communication, and collaboration).
The SFUSD Science Core Curriculum & the Next Generation Science Standards
In 2019-2020, SFUSD is fully implementing the SFUSD Science Core Curriculum supporting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in grades 6-12. K-5 is in year two of a 3-year roll-out of the NGSS-aligned science core curriculum. Find out more about the SFUSD Science Core Curriculum and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
