Science info grafic

From the study of seeds and plants in Kindergarten through accelerated physics, genetics, sustainable horticulture and organic chemistry at Princeton High School, we offer a full spectrum of science courses designed to prepare students for a changing world. We want to instill in students a love of scientific inquiry, enable them to meet challenges, and to persevere to find solutions. For specific information about science courses offered at Princeton High School please consult our PHS Program of Studies.

Research Program Volunteer Opportunities for 2023-2024 school year

School Gardens

Our vibrant school gardens provide hands-on learning experiences for a multitude of classes, from art to science. The lessons our school gardens provide range from teaching students how to plant, tend, and harvest fresh fruits and vegetables to studying prey and predator relationships within a garden ecosystem. Our garden educators work with students to care for each school's garden and teach students how to make a garden thrive.

Congratulations to all PHS students who are exploring their passions this summer

PPS Students enjoyed a range of summer learning this year. Students traveled near and far to engage in STEM activities. Some of the exciting ways that PPS students engaged with STEM include:

-Growing gardens at home and within the community (see pics below)

-Working with local organizations on sustainability projects

-Developing apps and exploring science as play with PHS research mentors

-Participating in research projects as part of rigorous enrichment programs abroad

-Developing their own research ideas with mentors at local universities and in laboratories In every way, we hope to encourage daily wonder and innovation. Have a great school year.
