Next Generation Science Standards

Did you know? Our teachers are working on incorporating The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into their science lessons. The NGSS are a new set of K–12 science standards that were developed by states, for states. The NGSS identify scientific and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas in science that all K–12 students should master in order to prepare for success in college and 21st-century careers.
