AP Environmental Science (APES)
(Not taught in the 2019-20 Academic Year)
This upper-level elective is for students who have completed Biology and who are ready for the demands of an Advanced Placement class. We will study all aspects of the natural world and its interactions with humans, using Biology, Chemistry, and Earth Science but also law and public policy. Students must be motivated to do extensive reading and studying on their own. Classes will focus on laboratories, field trips, and test preparation, with little formal lecture outside of guest speakers. Students are expected to take the AP exam in May at the end of the school year. This is a year-long class.
