AP Biology is designed to offer students a solid foundation in introductory college-level biology by developing inquiry and reasoning skills, applying mathematical routines, and emphasizing students making connections between the four big ideas of biology:

  1. The process of evolution drives the diversity of life.
  2. Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.
  3. Living systems store, retrieve, transmit, and respond to information essential to life processes.
  4. Biological systems interact, and these systems and their interactions possess complex properties.

Though our system has an open enrollment policy, students should understand that this course is designed to be a second year biology course, and the equivalent of a year-long introductory college level course.  The course requires a working knowledge of biology and chemistry. The breadth, pace, and depth of material covered exceeds the standard high school Biology course, as does the college-level textbook, laboratory work, and time and effort required of students. This course will meet five days a week (180 days total) for 55 minutes each time, but students should expect to spend a minimum of three to five hours a week outside of class on course work.
