Science

The CESJDS High School science program is lab based, with an average lab group size of 2 students. Students have the opportunity to study and then to apply their knowledge first hand through traditional and cutting edge lab experiments. 9th grade scientists focus their study on the field of molecular biology. 10th grade scientists study chemistry and have the option of studying a second science (either Genetics & Biotechnology I ADV or Physics I ADV). 11th grade science offers our scientists the opportunity to study their scientific field (or fields) of choice (Chemistry, Genetics, Physics). 12th grade offers our scientists a wealth of elective choices: Anatomy & Physiology, Bioengineering, Genetics & Biotechnology, Organic Chemistry, and Physics. The knowledge and skills taught in our science courses have assisted many students in attaining internships at prestigious research institutions such as the NIH, FDA, NIST, NASA, Walter Reed, the Technion, and the Weizmann Institute of Science, among others.
