Due to high demand from CHS students, the 2015-2016 school year will mark the start of an Advanced Placement Biology class, a class many students have been wanting for years. Honors and College Preparatory Biology teacher Nancy Jobsz will be teaching the class. In order to take AP Biology, students must have received an A or B in their previous biology class as well as a previous enrollment in a chemistry class.

“I believe that we are continually improving offerings at CHS so that students can follow the high school pathway that best meets his or her needs,” said Jobsz.

Although College Preparatory and Honors Biology are already offered at CHS, AP Biology is designed to be a new and unique way of learning biology. AP Biology is a continuation of the first year of biology and is heavily based around lab activities that are different from those of other biology classes. The objective of these labs is to help students learn concepts in a hands-on way. In addition, the AP class will be completing the entire biology book, which includes information regarding the role of biology in the modern day world.

Students, faculty members and Jobsz believe this course is a beneficial choice for those who are passionate about science and hope that many students take advantage of this opportunity.
