Biology I - A laboratory-based course designed to study living organisms and their physical environments. Students should apply scientific methods of inquiry and research in the examination of the chemical basis of life, cell structure, function and reproduction, energy, natural selection, diversity and ecology. Laboratory activities, the use of technology, and the effective communication of results through various methods are integral components of this course.
 
Biology II - A laboratory-based course that continues the study of life. The units studied include biochemical life processes, molecular basis of heredity, natural selection, behavioral patterns, and advanced classification and organism study. Laboratory activities, research, and the use of technology and effective communication of results through various methods are integral components of this course.
 
Environmental Science - A course dealing with the problems of our earth and possible solutions. Topics include how we use and abuse nature, how we protect our environment for ourselves and future generations, energy and fossil fuel conservation, species extinction, over-population and pollution.
