Connect to Achieve; Lead to Inspire 9 Grade Course Options th All freshmen must take Biology 8th grade teachers may recommend students for the on-level or honors course Biology is a graduation requirement 20% of the Biology grade is determined by the End of Course (EOC) test Connect to Achieve; Lead to Inspire Honors Biology Rigorous course that will prepare students for

AP/IB Biology Recommended students must meet the following criteria: Proficient score on Life Science EOG Milestones assessment High grade in Advanced Physical Science (without test retakes) Routinely superior classroom performance as compared to classmates Strong study habits and above average maturity Strong math student Skills/ability to complete rigorous research projects Connect to Achieve; Lead to Inspire On Level Biology For students that do not meet the requirements for the honors course or do not wish to take AP/IB Biology The on-level course:

Prepares students for the End of Course exam Allows students to pursue advanced science courses later in high school Is taught by outstanding, knowledgeable teachers Connect to Achieve; Lead to Inspire Waivers Students who waive against teacher recommendation into the Honors Biology course typically make lower grades than those who were recommended. Students are STRONGLY encouraged to follow teacher recommendations. Connect to Achieve; Lead to Inspire
