AP Computer Science

In AP Computer Science A, students learn the advanced Java programming skills needed in preparation for the AP Computer Science exam. Because the designated outcomes for the AP Computer Science exam change yearly, consult the AP web site for more information. Please note: The credit earned for this course will default to Fine/Practical Arts credit but can be changed to math credit if it more »

Calculus II (CU-Succeed)

This course follows the College Board’s suggested curriculum designed to parallel college-level calculus courses. Calculus II provides students with an intuitive understanding of the concepts of calculus and experience with its methods and applications, and also requires additional knowledge of the theoretical tools of calculus. This course assumes a thorough knowledge of elementary functions, and the calculus topics in AP Calculus AB. more »

Algebra I
