    Science courses at Smoky Hill High School are designed to provide students with opportunities to engage in scientific practices such as inquiry and reasoning, while also preparing them for a variety of post-secondary options.  Course curriculum is developed from standards, including those from the state of Colorado, from College Board (Advanced Placement courses) and from International Baccalaureate (MYP and IB courses). “Science—and therefore science education—is central to the lives of all Americans. A high-quality science education means that students will develop an in-depth understanding of content and develop key skills—communication, collaboration, inquiry, problem solving, and flexibility—that will serve them throughout their educational and professional lives.”  (from the Next Generation Science Standards)
