The nature of science is inquiry! The ILS Science Department is continually re-evaluating and implementing new approaches and coursework to provide our students with a broad range of inquiry and challenge-based experiences. 


The ILS Science Department seeks to meet the needs of each student with a program of study that offers a variety of classes providing fundamental knowledge, college preparation, and the challenge of college level Advanced Placement courses. 


Science course offerings include:


Concepts of Physics & Chemistry



Anatomy & Physiology

Marine Science

AP Chemistry

AP Biology

AP Environmental Science

AP Physics


Three years of science are required, including Biology & Chemistry. However, we strongly encourage all students to take four years of science. 


All science courses include a laboratory component and strive to engage students in science outside of the classroom through field trips, guest speakers, and even kayak excursions from campus. 


A variety of extra-curricular clubs are associated with the Science Department including the Environmental Club, BoscoBots (a robotics club), Catalyst (a science inquiry club), HOSA-Future Health Professionals Club, the Athletic Training Club, and the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) Team. All clubs are open to any student interested, but students may need to fulfil specific club participation requirements. 


The local chapter of the Science National Honor Society is available to junior and senior ILS students who excel academically and are committed to the study of science. Members of SNHS provide tutoring services for their peers, participate in Science Olympiad competitions, and routinely make contacts with professionals in the scientific community. Membership requirements include:

  •     Overall GPA and a B+ average across all science courses

  •     Enrollment in at least one second year honors or upper level honors course prior to senior year

  •     Teacher Recommendations
