Three years of science are required for graduation. Four years of science are recommended for college admissions. One Biological and one Physical Science are required for graduation.

Initial Science course (Biology or Foundations of Biology) is based on the High School Placement Test (HSPT) scores. For placement into Honors Biology or to be leveled up from Foundations of Biology to Biology, students are required to take a department placement test, offered in the spring.

All honors and AP courses may have both Science and Math prerequisites and the department will use available  grades (at a minimum 1st semester and 3rd quarter or both semesters if available) for placement.
