The Glenbrook South Science Department offers two inquiry-based science pathways that allow students to uncover patterns in nature.

In addition to the traditional science pathway, some students join the Science & Engineering Learning Community which is an integrated honors program of study for students who are concurrently enrolled in Project Lead the Way engineering courses.  Both science pathways emphasize and allow students to explore the cross-cutting big ideas of 

  • Systems & System Models
  • Energy & Matter
  • Scale, Proportion, & Quantity
  • Stability & Change
  • Cause & Effect
  • Patterns
  • Structure & Function

Our course philosophy is to prepare all students with a foundation in biology, chemistry, and physics and the opportunity to then dive deeper into one or more of five Advanced Placement science courses and seven science elective offerings.
