AP Biology is a college level course with a very demanding curriculum. The class covers all 1245 pages of the textbook with topics including: evolution, body systems, ecology, plants, genetics, cell biology and much more. To be successful requires a consistent, sustained effort. The class covers on average 2 chapters per week. Students are expected to average 1 hour of reading per night. I highly recommend keeping a spiral notebook and taking notes while reading - this comes in very handy when studying for tests.

Some of the most important topics include: global warming, evolution, water pollution, air pollution, pesticides, fertilizers and much more. The class covers one chapter per week and requires about 2 hours of homework per week (primarily reading the chapter and completing the online study guide).
The Science Club is open to all students. The competitive science team is composed of science club members and competes in UIL academics, the science bowl, JETS TEAMS competition and the TMSCA state meet. We study biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, environmental science, engineering, and many other sciences.
