Compass Program

Students investigate how the natural and human-created world works. Students build academic vocabulary and skills in science and engineering through reading, experimentation, and classroom opportunities to design solutions to problems. The specific content progresses in difficulty as a student revisits concepts, for example pushes and pulls are studied in kindergarten and third grade.

Atlas Program

We will increase science literacy in middle school students to excite, engage, and prepare them for their high school science experiences.


High School

EHS students will graduate with a lasting understanding of science, having engaged in discussions about science issues and information, so they can continue into scientific careers and studies. Students will cultivate an understanding of core science ideas using hands-on activities with science and engineering practices and cross-cutting concepts. Our science teachers are implementing alignment with the Washington State K-12 Science Learning Standards previously known as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
