Horizon West Middle School Science Department is excited and looks forward to providing our students with a positive and enjoyable learning experience. As you know, from being around adolescents, they are very inquisitive and “hands-on” creatures. Our program is, and will continue to be inquiry/activity based.

The content we deliver is in accordance with the Florida Department of Education’s Grade Level Expectations as well as the Orange Public Schools’ benchmarks. Science is part of the SSA (Science State Assessment) testing document, and we will be working hard to make sure that our students are prepared to excel on this important test.
