The science department at Keene Middle School uses a hands-on approach to cover life, Earth, and physical science topics. We currently follow the SAU 29 K-12 Standards that are aligned with the New Hampshire science frameworks. Our department is currently working on a change to align our curriculum to the Next Generation Standards.
