Science

The study of science at The Putney School revives, instills and encourages curiosity about the natural world by equipping students with the habits of mind needed to ask and answer questions using scientific method. Courses introduce fundamental biological, chemical, and physical principles through active inquiry, experimentation, direct instruction and exercises in problem solving. Advanced tutorials in the sciences are available. Upon graduation, students have understanding of essential methods and content sufficient for lifelong learning, responsible citizenship, and for further study of science at the university level, all with curiosity intact.
