Pre-Advanced Placement Biology
Pre-Advanced Placement Biology focuses deeply on the concepts and skills that have maximum value for college and careers. This course concentrates on the core areas of ecological systems, cellular systems, evolution, and genetics. Rather than understanding content topics in isolation, students make meaningful connections between the structures, processes, and interactions that exist across biological systems – from cells to ecological communities. In Pre-AP Biology, students will be active participants in analyzing real-world phenomena, apply science practices to construct and revise their knowledge, and regularly collaborate with their peers in dialogue, investigations, and problem-solving. The course is weighted as an Honors course in GPA calculations.
