AP Biology 3A007X0A
AP Biology is intended to provide a rigorous introductory college level Biology course with laboratory activities. The AP Biology course is equivalent to a two-semester introductory college biology course. Due to the rigor of this course, greater amounts of time and effort are required on the part of the student. Students are expected to take the corresponding AP Examination administered by College Board ®. CollegeBoard recommends this course for students who have completed biology & chemistry.
COURSE NOTE: Pending student registration results, some AP courses may not be offered on your school's campus. If the course is not offered on your school's campus, you will be allowed to attend that course at another county high school. In this case, transportation is the responsibility of the student.

COREQUISITES: If you take this course, you must also take 33215X0A - Biology II (2nd Year) Honors
AP Chemistry 3A017X0A
AP Chemistry is the equivalent of an introductory college level chemistry course. AP Chemistry has both the content and the laboratory components of a typical college level chemistry course. Students are expected to take the corresponding AP Examination administered by College Board ®.
COURSE NOTE: Pending student registration results, some AP courses may not be offered on your school's campus. If the course is not offered on your school's campus, you will be allowed to attend that course at another county high school. In this case, transportation is the responsibility of the student.

AP Environmental Science 3A027X0A
The goal of the AP Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them. Students are expected to take the corresponding AP Examination administered by College Board ®.
COURSE NOTE: Pending student registration results, some AP courses may not be offered on your school's campus. If the course is not offered on your school's campus, you will be allowed to attend that course at another county high school. In this case, transportation is the responsibility of the student.
