Department Chair: Mrs. Katherine Byers

Students should take science courses based on their anticipated plans after high school.  Course prerequisites will be enforced to ensure students are proved the best opportunity for success. Students should follow the recommended sequence unless prior approval is obtained from the science department chairperson. Students whose course plans allow for more than one science course per year are encouraged to consult with their guidance counselor and/or science department chairperson. Students may take a non-honors course but should carefully check the prerequisites for future classes.  A non-honors class is generally not accepted as a prerequisite for the second level course (i.e. Biology I does not prepare a student for AP Biology).

Students are not to be enrolled in courses in which they have not met the prerequisites.



Mole Day

Celebrated yearly on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 10^23), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was formed as a way to encourage interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles.
