At Options High School, we try to provide a variety of science classes to give students multiple opportunities to experience the variety of topics that the other High Schools offer. All of our science classes are one semester long, and are worth 5 credits for the semester. We are offer Chemistry, Environmental Science, Physics, Physiology, Astronomy, and Oceanography.
We are trying to be as "green" as possible, so we are limiting the paper use by having the students do a large amount of the writing on school computers. Students will be taking notes on the computers, participating in digital discussions on a wiki, and will be doing some quizzes/tests using a digital format.
In addition, LPS will be evaluating high school science curriculum and making decisions to take to the board of education for adoption this fall. Options students will have the opportunity to help test out the curriculum software that Discovery Education has developed.
