Academics at it's Best

Science & Social Studies

Science & Social Studies banner

In Northside, our concept-based curriculum for Science and Social Studies is interactive, hands-on, engaging, exploratory, and inquiry-based. This curriculum was developed using the required state standards within each content area and is designed to help students explore and learn about the world through observation, investigation, and communication. Students will engage in scientific and engineering practices and will design solutions to real-world problems. In grades K-4, we have created a curriculum that integrates Science and Social Studies standards, along with local story lines. In grade 5, the Science curriculum is a year-long study of general Science content and the Social Studies curriculum surveys the history of the United States.


Student & teacher

Science at Adams Hill

A Science AST empowers and supports teachers to feel confident to teach science. The job is to build capacity in the teachers.

We communicate and update teachers with training, ideas, and news from the Science Department. We schedule and implement hands-on science labs that reinforce science concepts taught in the classroom. We plan with the teachers,  co-teaching, organize materials that are needed, and review data. We also organize Family Science Night, Science Fair, Science tutoring, Science announcements, and planning of STAAR Targeted review and implementing other duties as assigned.
