• Hello , welcome to RMS Science!

    The Science department at Riverwatch Middle school follows the Georgia Performance Standards as listed on the Georgia Performance Standards website.  Throughout the school year we, the teachers, work hard in preparing the students for the Georgia Milestones test that will be administered in the spring.  We work together to challenge the students to think more in depth, at a higher level, and to fully dissect the standards.  Listed below are the integral pieces of both levels of Science in 6th grade. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any teacher on our team. We will be more than happy to assist.
