All students must successfully complete Conceptual Physics, Chemistry, and Biology to meet graduation requirements. All science courses are laboratory based and emphasize observational and laboratory skills over rote memorization. Elective courses include Advanced Physics, Advanced Chemistry, Advanced Biology, and semester electives in Geology, and Forensics. Science classes are built around laboratory and field experiences that are easily integrated with instruction in the longer class periods.
