AP Physics & AP Chemistry
February 12, 2017
By the 2018-2019 school year, juniors and seniors will be offered AP science classes for the first time since AP Biology was cut from the curriculum in 2015. “Not for this coming school year, but for the following school year, we are planning on changing Honors Chemistry and Honors Physics to AP Chemistry and AP Physics,” Science department chair Ms. Lindsey Novak said.
Currently, Honors Chemistry and Honors Physics are accelerated versions of the regular classes, but the plan is for science teachers to go through AP training so that they can teach the classes and prepare students for the AP exam. “So, really, we’re just jumping over to that AP curriculum, which has certain activities and labs and tests that need to be followed,” Novak said.
