Cred. Course Title Type Subject Prerequisites
1.00 AP Biology Honors/AP Science Yes
Prerequisites: Biology and Chemistry

This challenging course is designed to provide a college-level experience and prepare students for the AP exam in early May. Over two semesters, the students are engaged in a wide variety of activities, with substantial emphasis on interpreting and collecting data in virtual labs, writing analytical essays and mastering Biology concepts and connections. The key themes of the AP Biology course are: the scientific processes, the affects of science on technology and society, the chemistry and make up of living organisms, genetics, diversity, and evolution. Throughout this course you will be expected to answer questions, reflect on issues and complete lab activities. The primary emphasis is to develop an understanding of concepts rather than memorizing terms and technical details. Completing both segments of the course will successfully prepare you for the AP Exam.

1.00 AP Environmental Science Honors/AP Science None
Prerequisites: None

The goal of AP Environmental Science is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world and to identify and analyze environmental problems that are natural and human-made. Students will evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems and examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing problems. Laboratories support student content mastery in both hands-on and virtual experiences. Completing both segments of the course will successfully prepare you for the AP Exam.

1.00 Honors Chemistry Honors/AP Science None
Prerequisites: None

Chemistry I and Chemistry I Honors are rigorous and not intended for credit recovery. Students will be challenged and need to have 6-10 hours per week designated to be successful. It is designed as an interactive, 21st-century course focusing on Chemistry. Topics include the composition, properties, and changes associated with matter and their applications. This course is designed to serve as a foundation for the study of Chemistry. The utilization of scientific inquiry, web 2.0 tools, interactive experiences, higher order thinking, collaborative projects, real-world application through labs and a variety of assessments all aid the student in ultimately demonstrating a vast understanding of the importance of Chemistry in the world around them; enabling them to apply these properties to their everyday lives. Chemistry is offered as an honors course. Please talk to your teacher or guidance counselor to enroll in this course.
