The mission of Life Sciences Secondary School is to ensure that its graduates are well prepared for higher education opportunities and to participate fully in a democratic society. Life Sciences Secondary School, in conjunction with Mt. Sinai Medical School, has as its primary mission to motivate our students to actively explore the field of health sciences.
The faculty and administration of our school, working with the cooperation of parents and the student body, seek to provide a unique learning experience specifically tailored to students with an interest in the sciences.
Life Sciences students are expected to meet or exceed essential outcomes described by National and New York State Performance Standards report. These essential outcomes will be demonstrated in a wide range of rigorous state-aligned assessments, including student projects, reports, portfolios, presentations, as well as, State Regents, standardized examinations, and other demonstrations of mastery.
We believe such a mission can only be accomplished fully in a school based on respectful and trusting relationships between adults, students, and parents who are members of the schools extended community.
