Physical Science
Matter can be defined as anything that takes up space and has mass. Energy can be defined as the ability to cause change in matter. Physical Science is the study of matter and energy. Students in Physical Science course study the basic components that matter is made of, as well as different forms of energy that make things move and change. Enlightening, on-screen demonstrations of the concepts being taught bring the science to life and enhance student understanding. Course topics include: Matter; Elements; Energy; Magnetism; Electricity, Circuits, and Resistance; Waves; Sound; Electromagnetic Energy; Light, Color, and Lenses; Force; Motion; Machines; Resources.
General Biology
General Biology provides a basic introduction to biology, the study of life. A major focus of this course is the cell – its structure and function, cell transport and cellular energy, and how cells divide. Students will explore genetics and learn about DNA. Units on ecology and evolution are also included. General Biology is A-G Approved through the University of California.
Honors Biology
Honors Biology provides an in-depth introduction to biology, the study of life. A major focus of this course is the cell – its structure and function, cell transport and cellular energy, and how cells divide. Students will explore genetics and learn about DNA. Units on ecology and evolution are also included. Additional lessons have been included in this course to provide students with the more in-depth understanding that they will require for AP Biology.
AP Biology
AP Biology is an introductory college-level biology course. Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations by exploring topics in the following areas: Evolution Drives the Diversity and Unity of Life; Water Potential; Cell Structure; Cellular Respiration; Pigments and Photosynthesis; The Cell Cycle; Mitosis and Meiosis; History of Genetics; Human Genetics; Chromosomal Alterations; DNA and Genes; Viruses and Bacteria; Classifications; Animalia; Ecosystems, Population Growth, and Interaction. It is recommended that students complete Honors Biology and Honors Chemistry prior to taking AP Biology. AP Biology has been audited and approved by the College Board. AP Biology is A-G Approved through the University of California.
General Chemistry
General Chemistry provides students with a basic introduction to chemistry. Students are introduced to various forms of matter. They learn about the basic components of the atom and electron orbitals. They will become familiar with the Periodic Table and learn how to use it to predict properties of specific elements. They will learn about chemical bonding, practice stoichiometry, and learn basic reactions. A brief introduction of organic chemistry is also included. General Chemistry is A-G Approved through the University of California

Additional lessons have been included in this course to provide students with the more in-depth understanding that they will require for AP Chemistry. Honors Chemistry is A-G Approved through the University of California.
AP Chemistry
The AP Chemistry course gives students a college-level foundation on which to build more advanced course work in chemistry. Students expand their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they delve deeper into the following topics: atomic structure; inter molecular forces and bonding; chemical reactions; kinetics; thermodynamics; equilibrium; This course has been audited and approved by the College Board. AP Chemistry is A-G Approved through the University of California.
General Physics
General Physics course, explores the nature of our physical environment and explains how natural phenomena occur in terms of mathematics. He leads students through an investigation of matter and its motion through time and space, along with related concepts such as energy and force. General Physics is A-G Approved through the University of California.
Honors Physics
Honors Physics course leads students through an investigation of matter and its motion through time and space, along with related concepts such as energy and force. Honors Physics course was developed to help students build a strong foundation in basic physics prior to taking Advanced Placement Physics. We have found that students often struggle with AP Physics when they have a weak foundation in the basic concepts and mathematical skills of general physics. Honors Physics helps to fill in holes in student understanding, helping them to create a strong foundation of general physics concepts upon which they can build. Honors Physics is A-G Approved through the University of California.
AP Physics I
AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students expand their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as: Kinematics; Dynamics; Circular Motion and Gravitation; Energy; Momentum; Rotational Motion; Simple Harmonic Motion; Mechanical Waves; Electrostatics; Circuits; Problem Solving; It is recommended that students complete Honors Physics prior to taking this Algebra-based course. This course has been audited and approved by the College Board. AP Physics is A-G Approved through the University of California.
High School Remedial Science
The High School Remedial Science is designed to provide struggling students with a more basic foundation in science.
