Science at Avon Old Farms School

When boys can roll up their sleeves, witness a chemical reaction, or explore their subject matter on a class trip in the woods, learning becomes inspirational.

Each student has ample opportunity to formulate questions and engage with their coursework through regular demonstrations and laboratory experiments. This hands-on approach – coupled with reading and group discussions – helps students gain a better appreciation of science.

The science curriculum has two main objectives: to promote and sustain natural curiosity in the many areas of science; and, to develop the student's ability to explore, discover, and investigate the fundamental truths of nature.
