In 2007 Overland opened its Science Lab. Here our students perform hands-on experimentation and learn the scientific method. Each grade does a unit in Life Science, Physical Science and Earth Science. Classes come either once a week (Gr. 4-5) or once every other week (Gr. K-3).

Our lab utilizes the FOSS (Full Option Science System) curriculum, ensuring that our students are up to the California state standards. Next Generation Science Standards, including an engineering component, will be implemented as LAUSD introduces this update. 

Adjacent to the Science Lab is our Discovery Garden. The garden is designed to attract butterflies, showcase native and drought-tolerant plants, and provide an outdoor classroom.
