RLHS Science Department


The future belongs to the curious, the ones that are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it, and turn it inside out.

Our Mission

Students are engaged in scientific practices every day without even realizing it as they ask questions about their world, investigate and troubleshoot problems, and explain answers. The science department seeks to build upon students’ innate curiosity to engage them in authentic and rigorous investigations that support the development of critical thinking and communication skills. 

What we practice:
  • Hands-On, Minds On Science
  • Collaborative Problem Solving
  • Inquiry-Based Learning
  • NGSS Aligned Curriculum that Engages Students in Science and Engineering Practices
  • Equitable and Real-World Application

Our Vision

All Round Lake High School students will become scientifically literate citizens ready to critically consume, apply, and construct scientific knowledge.
