Four-Year Sequences in Science

  Core courses in Science are: Ecology & Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.   All ARHS students begin their studies with Ecology & Environmental Science or Ecology & Environmental Science / Honors.   After that year, students have a variety of options from which to choose.   Students can take a college prep course one year and an honors course the next (or vice versa).   Listed below are two possible sequences that allow students to take all four of the core courses (Note: Remember to consider mathematics prerequisites when planning a sequence):

Student #1: Standard Pathway

9th Grade 10th Grade
(MCAS)
11th Grade 12th Grade

Student #2: Alternate Pathway

9th Grade 10th Grade
(MCAS)
11th Grade 12th Grade
