Our Vision

Our vision is to create an inclusive environment centered on fostering independent critical thinkers and inquiry-based problem solvers who meet their academic potential through a rigorous curriculum of project-oriented programs and real world experiences.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve the Red Clay Consolidated School District as a 6th through 12th grade life science magnet school that promotes pride and ownership of education in an academically challenging learning community. This begins with an accelerated middle school program that prepares students to become diligent scholars of the bio-science pathways in the upper grades while maintaining a traditional high school experience. The goal is for students to graduate with the knowledge and skills to be college and career ready.

Chromebooks

Instructional technology is a critical part of student learning at Conrad Schools of Science and therefore, Chromebooks will be distributed during the 1st week of school. The Tech agreement and Protection Plan forms must be completed along with a $20 insurance payment prior to students receiving their Chromebook. These forms can be found on the Conrad Schools of Science web page under Parent Resources or follow the link below.

There are 2 options listed, the traditional paper form and an online form we are piloting this year:

Paper forms: Print the forms but only submit the signature page and payment to the school. Forms and payments (cash or check) will be accepted at the welcome back walkthrough or can be sent to school with your student. Payments can also be made online through PayPams.

Electronic forms: Use the online form to submit electronic signatures, there is no need to print this form. Payments (cash or check) can be sent in to school with your student during week one. Payments can also be made online through PayPams.
