Davidson I.B. Middle School’s approach to science is to make it accessible and real to every student. As part of the International Baccalaureate curriculum, Davidson incorporates health and social issues, community and service issues, environmental issues, and issues related to the impact of humankind’s genius on society. The school’s relationship with nearby Davidson College and the local science museum affords students greater access to science resources. This hands-on learning exposes students to real-life research and current events in the science field, and allows them to visualize themselves as scientists in the future.
