The MCPS science curriculum is standards-based and organized to promote student learning in both the content and processes of scientific investigation.The Virginia Science Standards of Learning identify academic content for essential components of the science curriculum at different grade levels. Standards are identified for kindergarten through grade six and for a core set of middle and high school courses – life science, physical science, Earth science, biology, chemistry and physics.

 The science program in Montgomery County Schools promotes safety and addresses the nature of science:
  • the natural world is understandable
  • scientific ideas are durable
  • scientific ideas are subject to change
  • science demands evidence
  • science avoids bias
  • science is a social activity
  • science is a blend of logic and imagination
