The Science department here at HSET include Living Environment and Earth Science. Freshman typically take Living Environment while Sophomores will study Earth Science. Plenty of hands on activities combined with rigorous classroom and lab instruction prepare students in both science classes to take the NYS Regents exam in the specific area of study at the end of the year. Additionally, each class has a requirement that students successfully complete 1200 minutes of lab time in addition to regular classroom work.
Earth Science. This class prepares students to take the Physical Setting, Earth Science Regents Exam and to become aware of the Earth on which we live. Students will study Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, and Oceanography during the course and need to be ready to cover a great deal of material and conduct themselves in a manner that will allow the learning environment to benefit each student’s needs and allow for the greatest level of learning possible. Mrs. Adams is available after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for students needing extra help.
