Science is a discipline that builds knowledge and skills over the years, culminating in a solid understanding of scientific principles and practices upon graduation.

Students are required to take two years of science - one year of biology and one year of physical science in order to graduate.

The science and technology program at Gunn High School is designed to produce scientifically literate students who will understand the scientific method and the tentative nature of scientific truth. They will learn some of the major concepts, laws, and theories of the various sciences.

Please feel free to contact the Instructional Supervisor for the Gunn Science Department, Ms. Laurie Pennington with your questions and/or concerns.
