The mission of the Science Department is to provide excellent, student-centered science educational opportunities for students attending Archbishop Ryan High School. All students, regardless of track, are exposed to hands on experimentation. Each student is rostered for a lab experience for one period during a six-day cycle.

Students are taught proper lab safety, following directions, performing experiments, gathering data, and developing conclusions. This laboratory experience also teaches students how to work well with their classmates through various cooperative learning activities.
