At Fraser we offer a range of courses to cater for a variety of interests, ability levels and career pathways. We endeavour to instil in our Year 9 and 10 students an enjoyment of Science and an appreciation of what it offers to them and how it contributes to society as a whole.
Our senior courses are designed for students to gain qualifications under NCEA and Scholarship. Science students at Fraser have achieved notable success in NCEA and Scholarship exams. Our Level 3 NCEA pass rates in Physics and Science consistently excel while Science students have gained Chemistry, Physics and Science Scholarship passes annually.
The Science Faculty's web pages are available on the School website. The web pages contain a detailed description of the courses available in Science subjects from Years 9 to 13. For senior students we provide links through to NCEA past exam papers and answers, a service widely used by our students to revise for external exams.
The Science Faculty at Hamilton's Fraser High School is one of the largest faculties in the school. We have 16 classroom teachers and two technicians and operate out of 15 laboratories. This includes two senior Chemistry laboratories, one senior Physics, one senior Electronics, one senior Biology and two specialist Horticulture / Agriculture laboratories.
As well as the teaching of science from Years 9 to 13, there are options available in Electronics, Agriculture, Horticulture, Floriculture, Environmental Studies, and at a senior level, in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
