The Abington Junior High School Science Department is committed to providing students with a curriculum designed to cover the breadth of the natural sciences in challenging depth. The teachers of the department utilize a variety of methods of instruction to include guided laboratory experiments, student inquiry centered experiments, independent research projects, and collection and analysis of real world data.  The seventh grade course in science introduces students to the study of the Earth and space sciences.  Students learn about topics in geology, hydrology, meteorology, plate tectonics, and astronomy. In eighth grade, students learn about the physical sciences during the first semester and the life sciences during the second semester, with emphasis on the diversity of life, cells, and heredity.  Ninth grade students are enrolled in biology, a course that meets six periods per week and culminates with the Keystone Exam for Biology in May.
