The mission of Perth Amboy Science Department is to encourage and prepare its students to gain successful contributions in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We accomplish this through a rigorous curriculum that is punctuated by college-level coursework and that emphasizes interdisciplinary study, research, ethical and responsible leadership, global perspectives, and service.
The goal is to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Our students must be critical thinkers, problem-solvers, computer-literate, and committed to school and the community. To that end, we have established a rigorous curriculum partnered with outside leaders in science. Students in the Biomedical program through Rutgers university can currently earn up to 15 college credits over their 3 years at Perth Amboy High school.
