Department Staff

About Us
It is the mission of the Papillion-La Vista South science department to provide all students with worthwhile learning experiences which will form a foundation for a life-long ability to function effectively in an increasingly complex, technological world. Our classes seek to blend science knowledge and processes which will awaken in students a sense of wonder, excitement, and intellectual power of science.

We seek to provide a rigorous academic and quality laboratory experience for all students.  Our courses are aligned with state standards and are delivered in an environment that provides rich, multimodal opportunities for all students to access content information.  Laboratories enhance this environment and allow our students to apply content knowledge to real problems.  We strive to educate informed, aware, scientifically literate citizens.
