Future Scientist!!

Students began their exploration into chemical and physical changes through a series of stations that required them to document the physical properties of various chemicals before and after a reaction may have taken place. Our goal is to relate what we see at the macroscopic level to any possible changes occurring at the microscopic (molecular) level and support our answers with observations.

Freshman Trip to Garfield Conservatory

Freshman students attended the Garfield Conservatory on May 24, 2019, with the Freshman team teachers Mr. Voss, Mr. Dunphy, Ms. D. Ruiz, and Ms. M. Ruiz to explore the various types of plants in the conservatory. Students toured and learned more about the flora of different regions, as well as engaged with their peers. This field trip was an incentive for having 100% of our freshmen at Gage Park High school tested for the PSAT 9th exam. This also served as an opportunity for grade-level unity in Gage Park High School and community building among classmates through the shared experiences at the field trip.
