This course covers both physical and cultural geography. Students learn various methods for defining place on the Earth's surface. Student's also investigate types of ecosystems and biomes. Various methods of how the Earth can be changed and modified naturally are then discussed, with students learning about earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, and erosion. Finally, economic systems are covered as well as political systems of government. The course emphasizes student application of core standards with information that is happening in real time.

Biology is a first-year Biology course. Students will be studying life and life systems with a close look at Ecology, Cellular Biology, Human Physiology, and Evolution. The use of media and technology will allow students to work individually and independently to understand life’s processes, scientific inquiry, research methods, and scientific design and problem solving. For example, in the first unit of study, students will research a parcel of land that is for sale and be able to construct an Environmental Impact Statement after analyzing the affects of development on the ecosystem.

Algebra A and Algebra B make up a two-year Algebra program. The main goal of Algebra is to develop fluency in working with linear equations. This 2 year program gives students the opportunity to study, learn, and practice algebraic concepts at a pace that allows additional learning activities, projects, and discussions. In this course, students will work with tables, graphs, and equations and solve linear equations and inequalities and systems of linear equations and inequalities. Throughout the course, students will have opportunities to apply mathematical skills and make meaningful connections to life’s experiences.

The main goal of Algebra is to develop fluency in working with linear equations. In this course, students will work with tables, graphs, and equations and solve linear equations and inequalities and systems of linear equations and inequalities. Students will learn how to simplify polynomials and begin to study quadratic relationships, along with analyzing mathematical situations verbally, numerically, graphically, and symbolically. Throughout the course, students will have opportunities to apply mathematical skills and make meaningful connections to life’s experiences.

Algebra 2 builds upon and extends concepts from both Algebra 1 and Geometry. In Algebra 2, students work with equations, inequalities, and graphs of linear, quadratic, trigonometric, rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Real-world applications that can be modeled by each of these functions are explored. Algebra 2 also introduces students to concepts of probability and statistics.s.

The main goal of Geometry is for students to develop a Euclidean geometric structure and apply the resulting theorems and formulas to address meaningful problems. Students will use experimentation and inductive reasoning to construct geometric concepts, discover geometric relationships, and formulate conjectures. Students will employ deductive logic to prove theorems and justify conclusions. Students will extend their pre-existing experiences with algebra and geometry to trigonometry, coordinate geometry, and probability. Students will use GeoGebra, compass and straightedge applications, Voice Threads, and other tools to investigate and explore mathematical ideas and relationships and develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations. Students will apply mathematical skills and make meaningful connections to life’s experiences.

English 9A is the first semester of a year-long Language Arts course. In this course, we will study novels, plays, poetry, and articles as a means of improving critical thinking, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and written expression. Through written, audio, and video recordings, students share their reactions to the characters, themes, and issues of the works studied. Grammar, vocabulary, symbolism, plot points, and character development are among the language and literary techniques which students will study in this course. Throughout the course, students will make connections between the themes and characters of literature, and the events and interactions of their own lives. Students will work through all steps of the writing process to create effective paragraphs and essays—skills that will apply in all disciplines throughout high school and beyond. Wikis and group work will allow students to share ideas and connect with other students, and interactive instruction and review will clarify grammar and usage rules to help our students avoid embarrassing mistakes that beset the English written word.

English 10A is the first semester of a year-long Language Arts course. In English 10, we will study and explore poetry, narratives, short stories, novels, non-fiction essays, articles and informational texts. Our comprehension of these texts will be facilitated by analyzing and evaluating the literary elements, plot, character development and themes of each work. As part of this course, we will continue to develop writing skills by experimenting with multiple forms of writing. We will clarify thinking and writing by improving our ability to support opinions, providing expressive details and using the writing process as a means to strengthen ideas. This course will provide ample opportunities for students to imaginatively and critically express themselves through multimedia resources as they make essential connections to the world, themselves and literature.

This one semester course, completed in conjunction with the core Language Arts course, focuses on fundamental, cross-curricular writing and English grammar and usage. Students will work through all steps of the writing process to create effective paragraphs and essays—skills that will apply in all disciplines throughout high school and beyond. Wikis and group work will allow students to share ideas and connect with other students, and interactive instruction and review will clarify grammar and usage rules to help our students avoid embarrassing mistakes that beset the English written word.

The goal of this class is to familiarize students with basic computing principles and terminology. By engaging in real-world activities, students will become acquainted with modern technology and learn why it is important. When students understand how computers work, finding solutions to technological problems becomes a lot easier. We will be exploring topics such as computer hardware, software, document processing, and a variety of other useful applications.

Digital Photography will allow students to become familiar with the functions of a digital camera. Students will learn how to use light and their camera to create art. They will also learn the rules of photography and how to tastefully break them. Students will develop higher level thinking through art criticism, art history, and aesthetics by learning about photography.

This course will teach students how design is used in modern communication. We will study various areas of design, including product, corporate,logo, t-shirt, poster, and a variety of other design-related projects. Students will learn design rules, design trends, and how to critique good and bad design. This class will show students what the design industry is like and how a career in the design field might suit them.
