The mission of Perth Amboy Science Department is to encourage and prepare its students to gain successful contributions in the fields 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 community. To that end, we have established a rigorous curriculum partnered with outside leaders in science-- Rutgers and Kean Universities. Some of our students are able to embark on research endeavors with these partnerships. We are designing a program to ensure that our future leaders will know the joy of discovering and forging connections within the sciences and have the opportunity to explore exemplary laboratory environments characterized by research, innovative teaching and community service.
