    4 : Honors Biology Grade Level – 9th grade Prerequisites – 7th and 8th grade science Course Description – This is a college preparatory biology class. We cover scientific method, ecology, cells, biochemistry, DNA, genetics, evolution, classification, and family life education. There is an end of year SOL test. Honors students will be expected to conduct a science fair project and learn topics that are more in-depth than the standard biology course. Back to Science Electives Chart
    5 : Active Physics Grade Level – 10th grade Prerequisites – Biology Course Description – Active Physics allows every student the access to the interesting world around them by involving students each day in activities that reveal and create insight into science without all of the rigors normally associated with a conventional course of Physics. The course has been developed for students who have an interest in science but require additional time to develop mathematical skills that are necessary for the science of Chemistry.

    6 : Honors Chemistry Grade Level – 10th grade Prerequisites – Must be in Algebra 2 Course Description – This is a college preparatory chemistry class. Frequent use of algebra skills, including logs is required. This course moves at a fairly quick pace with regular lab work supporting the topics. There are both more topics covered and a greater depth of material than in chemistry 1. There’s about an hour of homework per class session. Back to Science Electives Chart
    7 : Honors Geosystems Option for 3rd required science Grade Level – 11th or 12th grade Prerequisites – Biology & Chemistry Course Description - Geosystems integrates content from geology, astronomy, oceanography, and meteorology with various forms of technology, social and environmental issues, and hands-on experiments. Students will explore concepts using various technological equipment. Students will be involved in doing research projects, either independently or in teams. Students are required to take the Earth Science SOL test. Back to Science Electives Chart Learn more about Geosystems!
    8 : An integration of… Geology Astronomy Oceanography Meteorology Social & environmental issues Using technology & project based learning Learn more about Geosystems!
    9 : Geographic Information Systems(GIS) Software (ArcView 9.3) Software for visualizing, managing, creating, and analyzing geographic data to see relationships and identify patterns in new ways. Learn more about Geosystems!
    10 : Global Positioning System (GPS) Use handheld GPS devices for map-making and land-surveying projects Learn more about Geosystems!
    11 : Careers in Geosciences! Geoscientists follow paths of exploration & discovery in quest of solutions to some of society's most challenging problems. Predicting the behavior of Earth systems & the universe. Finding adequate supplies of natural resources, such as ground water, petroleum, & metals. Conserving soils & maintaining agricultural productivity. Developing natural resources in ways that safeguard the environment. Maintaining quality of water supplies. Reducing human suffering & property loss from natural hazards, such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods, landslides, hurricanes, & tsunamis. Determining geological controls on natural environments & habitats & predicting the impact of human activities on them. Defining the balance between society's demand for natural resources & the need to sustain healthy ecosystems. Understanding global climate patterns. Learn more about Geosystems!

    18 : AP Biology Grade Level – 11th or 12th grade Prerequisites – Biology & Chemistry Recommendations – Anatomy & Physiology (before or concurrently) Course Description - This course is similar to a biology course a student would take during his/her first year of college. Topics of this course include molecules & cells, heredity and evolution and organisms and populations. Within each of these general topics, specific sub-topics and concepts will be emphasized. College level lab work will also be required. Back to Science Electives Chart Back to AP options
    19 : AP Chemistry Grade Level – 11th or 12th grade Prerequisites – Biology & Chemistry Course Description – This course equates to a year of college chemistry with problem sessions and a strong lab experience. This is an excellent course for those planning on studying chemistry, entering a medical field or forensics. 1-2 hours of homework per class meeting, mostly involving problems and lab calculations is expected. Some lab work may need to be started before or finished after school. Back to Science Electives Chart Back to AP options
    20 : AP Environmental Science Grade Level – 11th or 12th grade Prerequisites – Biology & Chemistry Course Description - This is a college-level science course that teaches the relationships between humans and the natural world. The course identifies natural and human-caused environmental problems, as well as discusses potential solutions. Although this course is a science course with an emphasis on laboratory activities; the course also overlaps with reading, writing, math, and social studies disciplines.
