PHSSA's upper grade science classes take an interdisciplinary and hands-on approach to mastering the VDOE required Standards of Learning through investigating the exciting things in the world around us. Forest Hill Park, Reedy Creek, our gardens, orchard, and our many community partners provide constantly developing and changing opportunities for learning.
At the end of 5th grade, the State requires public school students to take a standardized test that assesses content knowledge that spans all 4th and 5th grade science curricula. Links to the VDOE standards are available below. If you are looking for live-linked study guides, go to Units of Study.
