Grade Level: 9 HP Biology Credit: 1

Honors Biology is a required introductory course offered to all Honors-level freshmen and is based on the English Level. The purpose of this course is to cover, in greater detail, living organisms and their interactions. The basics of Cell Biology, such as Structure, Energy and Reproduction are discussed in detail. A survey of the simplest to the most complex organisms will be covered. How these organisms relate and interact within their environment will be stressed. Advanced Biology is intended to provide a solid basis and prerequisite for further study in Advanced Placement (AP) Biology which can be taken either the junior or senior year as an elective. Labs and hand-on activities will be stressed to reinforce the material.
