The Science Academy adopts innovative methodologies to teaching and learning. We utilize a thematic approach to integrating the curriculum, undertaking a collaborative interdisciplinary study. The purpose of this venture is to allow students the opportunity to explore non-conventional learning styles in a college preparatory atmosphere, while becoming intellectually more efficient by incorporating learning modules that focus on rigor and the intensity of a college-bound program, and not a traditional-paced setting. The Science Academy prepares students for the roles that will shape our nations’ future by incorporating science, technology, engineering and mathematics across all academic disciplines. We recognize that STEM education is vital to preparing our students for US competitiveness and economic prosperity.
"The middle school magnet is the only public school in California where 100 percent of the students met or exceeded standards on the rigorous math exam. Coupled with its 98.29 percent score on the English assessment, the Science Academy also posted the highest combined score in California." Read the whole article on our SBAC test scores here.
The Science Academy STEM Magnet has achieved the highest scores of ANY public school in the State of California. The California Department of Education (CDE) released test score results from the 2017 Smarter Balanced assessments of math and English language arts on Sept. 27. We have achieved #1 in Math and #7 in English and #1 for Overall Combined Scores (including High Schools). View all results at caaspp.edsource.org.
The Science Fair timelines were given to the students. Please make sure that you get that timeline from your child and go over it with them. You can find all the important dates here.
The Science Academy students scored 100% proficiency in all grade levels AND 94% of our STEM students were in Advanced upper tier. See our scores here.

The French Thursday Club is back!! Last year when we had over 300 students and it was the second year of the French Club, introducing each and everyone to the French language and the French culture.
Every Thursday, this after school FREE Club (once a week) is held from 3:05 to 5:00 (and from 1:15 to 4:15 on minimum days). We will eventually move to the Library when the Mobile Museum will be gone.
Every Friday, we have an Enrichment Program: FRENCH II PREP and will be held in ROOM 22 (the Bungalows -Science Academy section). The tuition is $200 (up until the very last Friday before Winter Break).
