Warwick Valley encourages its students to explore the multifaceted world of science so they can apply the knowledge they develop to real-world situations and problems. 

The District provides a comprehensive Science program that includes Honors and Advanced Placement courses, as well as a three-year, independent study Science Research Program in partnership with SUNY. The curriculum includes courses in Biology, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry and more. At the Elementary School level, the Science curriculum is focused on the development of inquiry-based skills​​, and is integrated into the schedule by the classroom teacher.

Warwick Valley students interested in the varied fields of Agriculture may choose the District’s agricultural program. Students in the program deepen their interest in the scope and importance of agriculture – locally and globally – and develop applicable, real-world skills that prepare them for college or career pursuits. The District’s diverse agricultural program offers classes in areas including Land, Food & People, Landscape and Floral Design, Animal and Veterinary Science, and Conservation, Wildlife, and Land Management. Students are also encouraged to develop leadership, career, and technical skills through involvement with the highly regarded national organization, Future Farmers of America.

Warwick Valley offers several courses for students interested in the field of engineering, beginning early with hands-on engineering experiences at the elementary level. The District’s youngest learners work with a curriculum created by the Boston Children’s Museum, called Engineering is Elementary (EIE). EIE, which reflects many of the core traits of the District’s Portrait of a Graduate, is described as “solutions (that) are rooted in the Engineering Design Process so students learn to think like engineers. Today’s children need to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, communicators and collaborators — whether preparing for STEM-related careers or to contribute as world citizens.” 

Engineering courses continue in Middle School, where students begin to explore many different fields of engineering through the Project Lead the Way Gateway offerings, including: 

  • Design and Modeling
  • Computer Science for Innovators and Makers
  • Green Architecture
  • Automation and Robotics

At the High School level, there are many course offerings that go even wider and deeper into the areas of engineering. These include the areas of: 

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Constructional Engineering
