In January 2015 Covenant opened its new standalone science classroom located adjacent to the school’s outdoor classroom. The addition of the science classroom was part of Covenant’s “Campaign to Move Science Forward” which provided for a comprehensive approach to science education at Covenant School. Curriculum, facilities, staff and professional development were all addressed:
- Covenant has modified its Science curriculum to be more purposefully experiential across all grade levels and well-balanced in the areas of the life, earth and space, and physical sciences.
- The school constructed a standalone science classroom with covered outdoor workspace.
- A science classroom coordinator was employed to support science education as well as work to integrate the school’s outdoor classroom into the curriculum.
