Science

  • Grades 9-12

    Each of the following courses is designed for students who may have had some difficulty with previous Science courses. Each is designed as a non-Regents laboratory course and requires 600 minutes of laboratory experience and satisfactory lab reports documenting those activities. A school final examination is given in June.

  • INTEGRATED SCIENCE (5 periods/cycle)

  • CHEMISTRY IN THE COMMUNITY (6 periods/cycle)

  • CONCEPTUAL PHYSICS (6 periods/cycle)


  • Each of the following courses closely follows the corresponding New York State Core Curriculum, which is aligned with the New York State Standards. Each course requires a minimum of 1200 minutes of laboratory experiences and satisfactory lab reports documenting those activities. The State Regents exam in each course is administered in June.

  • EARTH SCIENCE (6 periods/cycle)

  • BIOLOGY H (6 periods/cycle)

  • BIOLOGY R (6 periods/cycle)

  • ELL LIVING ENVIRONMENT (6 periods/cycle)

  • CHEMISTRY H (6 periods/cycle)

  • CHEMISTRY R (6 periods/cycle)

  • PHYSICS R (6 periods/cycle)


  • AP Science Courses

    BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, APC PHYSICS (calculus based), APS PHYSICS 2 (algebra based) (6 periods/cycle) COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES (5 periods/cycle) 

    One Credit Each                                                               One Year

    Prerequisites: Students have taken a first-year course in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics* with satisfactory performance on those Regents exams or the equivalent SAT II

    * May be taken concurrently with Department approval

    The Advanced Placement Science courses are designed to be the equivalent of a college introductory course, which is usually taken during the college freshman year. The courses will include those topics regularly covered in a college course. These courses differ significantly from the high school courses in science with respect to the textbook used, the range and depth of topics covered, and the kind of laboratory work done by students. THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMINATION (in May) ARE REQUIRED.

    Preparation for class is expected to take at least one hour per night.
