    Advanced Placement Physics 
     
    (This course is a co-taught course with Advanced Placement Calculus 1(AB) therefore students must enroll in both courses.)  This course is computer-enhanced, laboratory-oriented and designed for those students planning a career in architecture, engineering, and the physical sciences. The course covers the same basic topics as the regular physics course but does so at an accelerated pace and a more advanced level. Students are expected to have exceptional mathematical ability. The goal will be to follow the Physics Mechanics C curriculum as recommended by the College Board. There is a required assignment over the summer, and there may be extra classes before and after school.
     
     
    Advanced Placement Biology (Offered every other year.)

    This course, which will last for two semesters, is designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester college introductory biology course usually taken by biology majors during their first year. After taking the AP exam, some students may earn credit for a first year Biology pre-requisite or they may have fulfilled some other basic requirement and will be well-prepared for a College Level Biology course.   The course covers the same basic topics as the regular Biology class, but goes into a much greater depth and uses a college-level textbook. Students are expected to have exceptional lab skills and study skills. The goal will be to follow the AP Biology curriculum as recommended by the College Board.   There may be extra classes/study sessions before and after school to prepare for the exam.

     

    Advanced Placement Chemistry 

    This two semester, first-year chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year.  For some students, this course enables them to undertake, in their first year, second-year work in the chemistry sequence at their institution or to register in courses in other fields where general chemistry is a prerequisite.  For other students, the AP Chemistry course fulfills the laboratory science requirement and frees time for other courses.  The course covers the same topics covered in the Accelerated Chemistry course as well as the AP Chemistry curriculum as recommended by the College Board.  Students are expected to have exceptional lab skills and study skills.  There may be extra class/study sessions before and after school to prepare for the exam.
