In Tacoma Public Schools, we center our science teaching and learning around three important items: 

  1. Washington State Learning Standards (WSLS) for Science (Next Generation Science Standards) 

  2. Research-based instructional practices to engage students in the Science and Engineering Practices

  3. The belief that all students are born curious and meant to explore the world through a variety of experiences around science that will help create the next stewards of our planet.
