The program at Arlington Science Focus School (ASFS) is designed to develop extensive understanding of science content and process through inquiry-based learning. Science content is used as the catalyst to teach all curricula, as natural inquiry methods are used to develop students’ skills of thinking, analyzing, reflecting, problem-solving and hypothesizing. In addition, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are integrated into the delivery of all instruction. Students are encouraged to use various strategies to tackle complex problems.The ASFS philosophy celebrates diversity and uniqueness. As Gardner’s Theory of the Nine Multiple Intelligences is implemented in classrooms, the focus is to promote the skills that are valued in the community and the broader society. This approach allows students to gradually assume responsibility for their own learning.ASFS provides a strong academic program that is enriched with many challenging experiences. In doing so, its students are truly young scientists constructing the future.
