– Albert Einstein


The Halifax West High School Science Department is dedicated to teaching about scientific knowledge and the importance of science in our everyday lives. Through the excitement and experiences of our teachers, we hope to foster a love for science and a level of critical thinking. This allows students to be inquisitive and passionate about science and enjoy the journey of scientific learning.
