Biology I (H)
A first level course in Biology at the secondary level, structure around a series of major themes: science of investigation and inquiry, the history of biological concepts, complementary structure and function, diversity of type and unity of pattern, genetic continuity, regulations and homeostasis. These themes are presented through a variety of organisms best illustrating the concept under study. Lab work supplements each topic.
Biology I (A)
This course is an introduction to Biology, surveying cellular biology, genetics, study of heredity, embryology, botany, different types of plants and zoology. Experiments are included with each unit.
Biology I (B)
An introductory Life Science course which emphasizes the cellular and organism functions, different types of plants and animals, genetic continuity, evolution, taxonomy, and adaptation to environment. Lab work supplements each topic.
Biology II (AP)
A course designed for students who have a strong interest in biological sciences and are capable of college-level work. The course emphasizes the study of cellular structure and processes, and microbiology.
Biology II (A1)
An advanced course in biology designed for the student who is interested in the biological sciences. This course emphasizes microbiology, cell biology (including cell functions such as cellular respiration), evolution, and some human biology.
Chemistry I (H)
An accelerated course introducing the topics of Chemistry (behavior of matter, atomic theory, equilibrium, kinetics, energies of reactions, organic nomenclature). There is a definite emphasis on problem-solving in each area. Laboratory experiments support concepts being taught.
Chemistry I (A1)
A course for college prep students which presents chemical principles (behavior of matter, atomic theory, equilibrium, acid-based chemistry, and carbon compounds) in a humanistic approach. Problem-solving techniques are an important part of the course. Laboratory experiments support concepts being studied.
Chemistry I (A)
This survey course presents the principles of chemistry and chemical applications with minimal mathematics. Topics include properties of matter, bonding, foods, fuels, acids, and bases. Emphasis is on providing background for informed decision making on issues such as health and the environment.
Chemistry I (A3)
A survey course of the major principals of Chemistry with minimal mathematics.
Chemistry II (AP)
A course in which the AP Chemistry syllabus is covered. Students electing this course must take the AP test.
Chemistry II (A1)
A course designed to strengthen students understanding of concepts and skills presented in Chemistry I. A freshman college text is used.
Earth/Space Science (B)
A course which presents topics in the following: astronomy, geology, meteorology, oceanography. Energy resources and current science topics are also considered.
Environmental Science (A)
A course designed for those interested in investigation how human development impacts the environment. Emphasis is placed on a survey of current topics such as ecological relationships, land use, wildlife, wildlife management, pollution, and water.
Anatomy and Physiology (H)
An in-depth laboratory and lecture course that emphasizes the structure and function of the human body. This course is designed for students who plan to enter a biological or medical field.
A course that emphasizes the structure, function, development, nutrition, and the well-being of the human organism. it is designed for student who plan to pursue careers in nursing, health, physical education, and human services, or who have merely a strong interest in the fitness and development of the human organism.
Physics I (H)
An in-depth study of classical physics including mechanics, electricity, waves, and light. Emphasis is on mathematical analysis of laboratory investigations.
Physics (A1) Senior Course
A survey of classical physics including mechanics, electricity, waves, and light. This course differs from Physics I Honors only in rigor of mathematical applications.
This course presents a non-mathematical approach to the traditional physics topics of mechanics, electricity, waves, and light. It is intended for students who wish to learn the content of physics, but lack the mathematical background for Physics I.
