高级研究项目
  • 在一个不断变化的世界里, our students will need to be creative problem solvers and engage in critical analysis of the issues surrounding them. The 西奥赛特中学 Research Program will foster independence among students as they develop 科学 and engineering practices. Students will be able to identify problems and develop meaningful pathways towards solutions allowing them to communicate scientific thought. Research develops a sense of academic autonomy in learners that naturally reinforces all areas of professional and personal life.

    All major disciplines at 西奥赛特中学 expose the student body to the techniques required to conduct a research investigation. The highly motivated research oriented student has the unique opportunity to participate in our Three Year 高级研究项目 which has interdisciplinary options. These 高级研究 classes meet ninth period on alternate days throughout the school year. Students are awarded a half-unit bonus credit for this honor’s class. A team comprised of business, 数学, 科学, 社会研究, and technology teachers work with this select group of students. All research students will be encouraged to participate in research during one summer. The recommended summer research should be taken between their junior year and senior year. It is hoped that the summer of research is coordinated with an established research program/facility or with a researcher from a university, 医院, 实验室, 等. 

    All 9th grade honors 科学 students take Research 1. Students must apply to 高级研究 10. A completed application form and two teacher recommendations must be submitted in the spring prior to admission to the program. One recommendation must be from a 科学 teacher, and the other is from either an English, math or 社会研究 teacher. A maximum of 48 tenth grade students are selected each year to participate in the tenth grade 高级研究项目. Students will be taught the process of research and will be required to do research in one of the following disciplines: 数学, 科学, 或社会科学.
