Science    

Science is taught through an integrated approach we call the Pinnacle Prep Method. Students learn through the lenses of Science, Math and English (readings, writing, and communication skills). We believe this integrated approach empowers our students to gain valuable skills that can be related to real-life situations. (Students in 2nd-8th grade)
