Science helps students develop a sense of wonder about the world around them, fosters an inquiring mind and equips them with the critical thinking skills to inform their own opinions.
The Science curriculum at Verita International School is underpinned by a commitment to making science relevant and practical for all students. Course units are developed around the international middle years curriculum (IMYC) for years 7 – 9, the Edexcel International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for years 10 and 11 and the International Baccalaureate diploma program (IB DP) for years 12 and 13.
Students from years 7 – 9 all study general science. That contains elements of all three major sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. In years 10 and 11 students are obligated to take all three sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, but these are given as separate lessons and are specialised for that field. In year 12 the students will choose at least one science, with the option of taking a second, and this subject will be hyper-specialised in that scientific field, the student will then have this same science in year 13.
