AP Biology is a college level course designed to be the equivalent of a 2 semester college introductory biology class based on the outline provided by the College Board. It is designed to develop a thorough understanding of the major concepts and an appreciation of science as an ongoing investigative process.  Primary emphasis is on developing an understanding of concepts rather than on memorizing terms and technical details.  Essential to this conceptual understanding are a grasp of science as a process rather than as an accumulation of facts; personal experience in scientific inquiry; and application of biological knowledge and critical thinking to environmental and social concerns. 

Upon completion of this course students will be well prepared for further more advanced studies in college science courses.  Students are expected to take the College Board’s May administration of the AP Biology exam.  College credit may be earned if the student’s scores are high enough (colleges may differ in their acceptance and required score for college credit). Students should be aware that AP Biology is a fast paced, rigorous and extremely demanding course.  As such, only highly motivated students with an interest in science should enroll.  For sample questions and a more detailed description of the course, please see the College Boards website:  http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/courses/index.html
