AP Biology

  • Welcome to AP Biology!

    AP Biology will be a very challenging, yet rewarding course. This class will require time management and organizational skills from everyone. The AP Biology course is equivalent to a college introductory biology course taken by biology majors during their first year. What does this mean? We will be covering, on average, a chapter a week (sometimes more, yes, most likely more) out of a college-level textbook for the entire year. The end result will be a much deeper knowledge of biology and (hopefully) an excellent score on the AP Biology exam.
