This course aims to give students a comprehension of the forces that underlie change in the world. From the composition of the atom to the shifting of reaction equilibrium to the ultimate thermodynamic fate of the universe, AP Chemistry aims to give students a new perspective on the deep nature of the everyday while at the same time exposing them to the computerized lab techniques they will be encountering in their college careers.

AP Physics AB

Physics Syllabus.doc

In Physics, we look at the rules underlying motion, both as they were worked out by Newton in the 17th century, and more modern developments in quantum theory, relativity, nuclear and particle physics. We use the techniques from calculus (which students take concurrently) to build powerful tools to analyze and understand the forces and calculations underlying chemistry and biology, thereby giving students a springboard from which to launch into any scientific or applied mathematical discipline.

Biology

Biology Syllabus.xls

As comparative molecular evolution and customized genetic codes become more prevalent, taxonomic biology is making way for a more chemistry-based, ground-up approach. In this course, we aim to understand the mechanisms behind the great processes of life, make connections with material learned in chemistry and physics, and grasp the breath-taking process of species change on both the macroscopic and molecular levels, while at the same time imparting a respect for the complexity of life and consciousness of the role that biological knowledge ought to play in responsible life decisions.

Middle School | Elementary School

Physical Science

Physical science is the introduction of general principles of physics and chemistry. Students are provided with core knowledge to prepare them for high school science. Topics include measurement, motion, Newton’s laws of motion, momentum, energy, work, power, heat, thermodynamics, waves, sound light, electricity, magnetism, and chemical principles.

General Science

General science mainly encompasses the basics of life science and earth science, with a slight emphasis on physical science. For life science, students gain understanding of the study of living things, the characteristics and needs of all living things, including how animals adapt to changes and how living things interact with their habitats. Topic consists of the nature of science, cells and heredity, life over time, diversity of living things, taxonomy, ecology and human biology. For earth science students will understand the changes that are going on and around our planet. Topic will focused on weather, climate, plate tectonics, the solar system, and the changes on the surface and interior the planet. Basic chemistry will also be explored.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten explores physical science, life science, and earth science through investigations and experimentation. Physical science is based on observations, measurements, and predictions of materials and how they interact with the environment and each other. Investigating the plants and animals inhabiting the earth is a basis for life science. Earth science is exploration of the air, water, and land on earth.
