Archbishop Murphy High School offers eight science courses in order to produce graduates who are science-literate, academically exceptional, hands-on learners. Students are required to complete three science courses over four years, but many pursue their interests in advanced science electives and earn college credit.
AMHS partners with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Seattle Aquarium for field study and lab work. AMHS is also one of only four schools in the Pacific Northwest offering climate science – a 200 level course at the University of Washington.
Small class sizes (max of 24) allow teachers more time for one on one work with students. AMHS is actively moving to The Next Generation Science Standards. The Standards make students more science literate and allow students to develop their engineering basics.
