Advanced Placement Physics provides the student a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of physics and prepares them to use physics in their own lives and professions. Students enrolled in this course are expected to take the Advanced Placement Physics B Test in the spring. Students are expected to work independently.

Conceptual Physics provides a conceptual basis to increase a student’s appreciation and understanding of the ideas of Physics.

Honors Chemistry is a laboratory science, which studies inorganic chemistry, chemical laws and theories, atomic and molecular structure and organic chemistry. It is designed to increase the knowledge and appreciation for the world God created. It is for students who have a strong background and interest in science. Because mathematics is the language of science, a basic understanding is necessary.

Physical Science is a laboratory course designed to give all students a beginning knowledge of chemistry, to offer insights into the means by which scientific knowledge is acquired, to encourage the exercise of reasoning skills, and to allow for the development of useful laboratory skills. Furthermore, the course is designed to increase the knowledge and appreciation for the world God created.

Honors Physics is an advanced laboratory science that studies the physical world around us. It is designed to increase the knowledge and appreciation for the world that God created. It is for students who have a strong background and interest in science. Because mathematics is the language of science, a basic understanding is necessary.

Course Overview

            This AP Biology course is designed to be the equivalent of a college introductory biology course which uses a college textbook. Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible to take the AP Biology Exam provided by the College Board for college credit. This AP Biology course emphasizes the biological concepts and topics in three overarching themes: molecules and cells; heredity and evolution; and organisms and populations. As students discover the diversity of life, they will discover the intricate details that allow organisms to survive at all levels of organization; from the signals that turn on a gene, to the complex relationships and interdependence of populations in an ecosystem. These topics will be integrated into the eight major themes from the AP Biology Curriculum Requirements (science as a process; evolution; energy transfer; continuity and change; relationship of structure to function; regulation; interdependence in nature; and science, technology and society). Students are expected to increase their knowledge and understanding of these biological concepts within the framework of these themes.
