What do you wonder? Let science help you answer that question. Our society is dependent on science and technology, and the advances that have been made. Your generation will be faced with climate change, the search for new energy sources, global health issues and more. It is important for each and every student to have the strong scientific literacy needed to meet the challenges that lie ahead. Here at Brentwood High School, we offer a wide selection of science courses. We hope to foster a genuine curiosity in each of our students, in an effort to create a world of citizen scientists. We encourage all students to complete four years of science course work, and to take the most challenging courses available to them.
The New York State Board of Regents has set forth new requirements in Science Education. All students are responsible for passing three science courses as a requirement for graduation. In addition, each student must pass one Regents exam with a minimum score of 65. Regents-level courses have a 1200-minute laboratory requirement, which must be satisfied in order for students to be eligible to take the Regents examination. The laboratory requirement must be completed by the first Friday in June. The Department Head of Science has final approval of all course selections.

Technology Education is an exploratory program of instruction in the sources, systems, and impact of technology. Students enrolled in Technology Education courses study the major technological systems of the world and our society. Various components or processes of electricity/electronics, energy and technical drawing) which are fundamental to technological systems are studied in detail. Technology Education courses have been designed to meet the needs of all academic levels and are taught through laboratory based learning activities. Laboratory classes will spend approximately 70%-80% of the class time with hands-on projects.
