A complete description of these courses can be found in the High School course catalog on the Connetquot High School page under the Guidance tab.
At the Middle School level our sixth grade science course introduces students to selected topics in Earth Science, Physical Science and Life Science. Students in seventh grade study life science and students in eighth grade study physical science. Accelerated students begin with a seventh grade course that combines life and physical science and in eighth grade study Regents Earth Science. Students may also take MST in eighth grade which is a project based course with an environmental theme.
Courses in Technology Engineering Education are offered at the introductory and advanced levels. Students can explore such courses as Automotive, Computer Aided Design, Electronics, Engineering, Construction Systems, Robotics and Transportation. Students in our CAD classes will use the most up to date AutoCad program.
