Biology

“I have come in order that you might have life - life in all it's fulness.  John 10:10” 
Our intention is for students to work hard by becoming the very best scientific thinkers and problem solvers. To be kind considering others and the world in which we live so that they can do the right thing following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
