    NEW Course Offering for 2019-20 - AP Spanish Literature:
     
    The AP® Spanish Literature and Culture course is designed to provide students with a learning experience equivalent to that of an introductory college course in literature written in Spanish. The course introduces students to the formal study of a representative body of texts from Peninsular Spanish, Latin American, and U.S. Hispanic literature. The course provides opportunities for students to demonstrate their proficiency in Spanish across the three modes of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational) and the five goal areas (communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities) outlined in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. The overarching aims of the course are to provide students with ongoing and varied opportunities to further develop their proficiencies across the full range of language skills — with special attention to critical reading and analytical writing — and to encourage them to reflect on the many voices and cultures included in a rich and diverse body of literature written in Spanish.
     
    NEW Course Offering for 2019-20 - Cybersecurity (Project Lead the Way):
     

    The design of the course exposes high school students to the ever growing and far reaching field of cybersecurity. Students accomplish this through problem-based learning, where students role-play as cybersecurity experts and  train as cybersecurity experts do.  PLTW Cybersecurity strongly connects to the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (also known as the NICE Framework or NCWF). Created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), this framework identifies standards developed by numerous academic, industry, and government organizations.  The framework objectives address topics that span K-12 education and guide learning progressions. The objectives also incorporate many of the big ideas and learning objectives outlined by the College Board and addressed in AP CSP and AP CSA. In addition, the course integrates Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) standards.  PLTW Cybersecurity gives students a broad exposure to the many aspects of digital and information security, while encouraging socially responsible choices and ethical behavior. It inspires algorithmic thinking, computational thinking, and especially, “outside-the-box” thinking. Students explore the many educational and career paths available to cybersecurity experts, as well as other careers that comprise the field of information security.

     
    NEW Course Offering for 2019-20 -AP® Physics C- Mechanics
    AP® Physics C: Mechanics is a half-year course equivalent to a semester-long, introductory calculus-based
    college course. It covers kinematics; Newton’s laws of motion; work, energy, and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; circular motion and rotation; and oscillations and gravitation. Students establish lines of evidence and use them to develop and refine testable explanations and predictions of natural phenomena. Focusing on these disciplinary practices and experimental skills enables teachers to use the principles of scientific inquiry to promote a more engaging and rigorous experience for AP Physics C: Mechanics students.
     
    NEW Course Offering for 2019-20 - AP® Physics C- Electricity and Magenetism
    Electricity and Magnetism is a half-year course following Physics C: Mechanics, is equivalent to a semester-long, introductory calculus-based college course and covers electrostatics; conductors, capacitors, and dielectrics; electric circuits; magnetic fields; and electromagnetism. Students establish lines of evidence and use them to develop and refine testable explanations and predictions of natural phenomena. Focusing on these disciplinary practices and experimental skills enables teachers to use the principles of scientific inquiry to promote a more engaging and rigorous experience for AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism students.
