Students should realize there is an obligation to do a considerable amount of work outside to prepare daily for the class, both individual studies and group work. Students must read nightly so as to be prepared daily for discussion. The rigor of the honors biology curriculum is intended to better prepare students for more advanced high school courses as well as to begin their preparation for college. Higher order thinking activities will be included in daily activities. Students will do research, writing, and several short-term and long-term projects.
9th grade biology covers the basics of general biology as stated in the Alabama Course of Study: scientific processes, ecology, cells, genetics, evolution and classification.
This course covers the fundamentals of genetics as stated in the Alabama Course of Study.
This is the second class in the series of Biomedical classes in which the students examine the interactions of human body systems as they explore identity, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis. Students design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body, and use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary action, and respiration. Exploring science in action, students build organs and tissues on a skeletal manikin, work through interesting real world cases and often play the roles of biomedical professionals to solve medical mysteries.
This is the third course in the series of Biomedical classes in which students investigate a variety of interventions involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease as they follow the life of a fictitious family. The course is a “How-To” manual for maintaining overall health and homeostasis in the body. Students explore how to prevent and fight infection; screen and evaluate the code in human DNA; prevent, diagnose and treat cancer; and prevail when the organs of the body begin to fail. Through these scenarios, students are exposed to a range of interventions related to immunology, surgery, genetics, pharmacology, medical devices, and diagnostics.
Health Science Internship is an honors course with classroom and clinical components. Senior Interns experience healthcare within a variety of clinical settings such as acute care hospitals and outpatient facilities. Course content focuses on physical assessment, pharmacology, therapeutic communication, & legal/ethical issues.
Students must take Fashion I before taking the Fashion Design class.

Pre-calculus is a college-preparatory course intended for highly motivated students who have successfully completed Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with Trigonometry. A variety of topics are reviewed and expanded upon, including trigonometry, complex numbers, function, graphing and logarithms. Many topics are combined to explore new areas such as polar coordinates, polar graphing, conic sections, vectors, matrices, polynomial theory and induction proofs. Graphing is studied in-depth to determine properties of functions. Many other areas are covered to give the college-bound student a basis for calculus.
Honors Anatomy & Physiology prepares students for biomedical, nursing, and other health-related careers and is a pre-requisite for the Health Science Internship. The course is organized to follow a logical sequence of the ten systems of the human body with emphasis on diseases & disorders. Laboratory dissection includes anatomical study of a mammal.
This course is designed to assist students as they explore the structures and functions of the human body. There will be extensive laboratory investigations that provide evidence to students of the means by which the human body maintains homeostasis.
This course is designed to provide information to students that meet the Alabama Course of Study on the topic of biology. This class will be taught at an accelerated level, allowing honors students the ability to write critically about lab findings as well as using creative problem solving skills.
