 About our Program

The Jefferson Science Magnet School, partnered with The Maritime Aquarium, a marine museum equipped with shark and seal tanks and an IMAX theater, offers an integrated inquiry-based science program, incorporating high academic standards and the social/emotional development of every Jefferson student. The curriculum integrates language arts, social studies, mathematics and fine arts throughout the program. Science instruction is delivered through the inquiry approach to stimulate high-level learning. Students will have numerous in-school and off-site authentic experiences where they will inquire and explore curricular areas, collect and analyze data to solve problems, effectively present their findings, and work together productively as participants in an increasingly complex global community.

Through integrated core content units in science, Jefferson Science Magnet students will graduate from our magnet school with an expansive array of experiences seldom offered to elementary children. Responsible, highly-motivated students with a true passion for science will do well in our rigorous program.
