The Advanced Placement Biology course is available as an elective to students in the junior and senior years who have completed Biology I and Chemistry I, and who wish to pursue college level work in biology. The course follows a syllabus established by the College Board, based on a college introductory biology course taken by biology majors in their first year. The course aims to provide students with the framework, factual knowledge, laboratory and analytical skills necessary to deal critically with the rapidly changing science of biology. The course will include the study of molecules, cells, energetics, genetics, evolution, ecology, the diversity of organisms, and the structure and function of plants and animals. N.B. All Advanced Placement Biology students are required to take the Advanced Placement Biology exam in May (TBD)
