This course is designed to be the equivalent of a typical college introductory biology course. The course uses a college-level textbook and laboratory program. The curriculum is centered around major units on organisms and populations, molecules and cells, and heredity and evolution. Dissection laboratory activities are included. In order to have extended laboratory time, class meets outside of the school day an average of three days per week.  Students are being prepared to take the AP Biology exam administered by the College Board in May.
