Group 4: Sciences
The science offers Physics, Chemistry, Biology and ESS (Environmental Systems and Societies), and provides students with variety of opportunities to explore the laws of science and the ways to use them. With an entire floor dedicated to science studies and labs equipped to the highest international standards, the Science department makes sure that students receive the richest curriculum brought to them in the most interactive way.
Biology (HL & SL)
Biology is all about life and living world. We are living organisms, we interact all the time with living world and we cannot survive without living world.
This course will help the students to apply the scientific process to address biological questions and problems; find, critically evaluate, and communicate information and think analytically and ethically about biological research and its societal impact.
Chemistry (HL & SL)
Chemistry is everywhere; it sometimes is called the "central science" because it connects other sciences to each other, such as biology, physics, geology and environmental science.
Chemistry helps the students to understand the world around them. Taking this subject, the students will learn research, problem solving and analytical, as well as scientific communication skills.
Physics (HL & SL)
Physics encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles. Moreover, it's the basis of many other sciences, including chemistry, oceanography, seismology, and astronomy. It can be applied to biology or medical science as well. Students taking this course learn research, problem solving, laboratory skills and applied mathematical skills (quantitative ways to look at the physical world).
Environmental Systems and Society (ESS) – SL only
ESS is the study of how organisms interact with the environment and what influence human make on those interactions. It is a subject for anyone with an interest in the environment and sustainability.
Students taking ESS learn how to apply the scientific process to address environment related issues, find, critically evaluate, and communicate information as well as think analytically and ethically about research and its impact.
This subject can be chosen either as Group 3 or Group 4 subject.
