Mr. Soppit (Head of Science)
Welcome to Science at WDHS!
Once students have completed both of their Grades 9 and 10 science requirements, there are many different science courses that are open to them, at a variety of pathways.
Students can choose to specialize in biology, chemistry, physics and environmental science. All of these subjects allow students a mix of textbook and hands-on experiences. These senior science classes also work alongside our three Specialist High Skills Majors in Construction, Health & Wellness, and the Environment.
You will frequently see our science classes conducting flashy chemical experiments, exciting dissections on a variety of organisms and body parts, and buzzing around Waterford on bicycles as they visit the local habitats nearby.
A variety of fields trips also occur during the year and include visits to the Toronto Zoo, Ontario Science Centre, Royal Ontario Museum, Ripley's Aquarium and Apps Mill to name a few
Check out the following video for a small tour of one of our recently renovated laboratories with Mrs. Johnson!
