The science department at Downsview S.S. continues the tradition of providing a climate for learning to achieve student success. The students are given the opportunity to experience the world of science through technology, real world experiences and classroom interactions. Students have opportunities to develop the skills and the knowledge they require to be successful in universities, colleges and work‐place. Each year we build strong learning skills that allow our students to become critical thinkers and independent learners. We focus on providing challenging and cooperative environment in our classes that helps to build positive character attributes in all our students.

Students will explore kinematics, with an emphasis on linear motion; different kinds of forces; energy transformations; the properties of mechanical waves and sound; and electricity and magnetism. They will enhance their scientific investigation skills as they test laws of physics.

These courses enable students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of organic chemistry, the structure and properties of matter, energy changes and rates of reaction, equilibrium in chemical systems, and chemical reactions.


These courses focus on the processes that occur in biological systems. Students will learn concepts and theories as they conduct investigations in the areas of cellular biology, microbiology, genetics, the anatomy of mammals, and the structure of plants and their role in the natural environment
