Graduation Requirements: Each student is required to take 3 science courses in order to graduate: earth/space science, biology, and either chemistry or physical science. After these courses are taken, each student then has a choice to take any number of science courses as an elective. Please refer to the Curriculum Bulletin to find out more information about all of our courses.
Lab Fees: All students are required to pay a lab fee. The amounts are $6 for Regular classes and $10 for all Honors and AP classes. This small fee covers the basic cost of materials needed for all labs throughout the year. IF A STUDENT DOES NOT PAY THE LAB FEE, IT WILL BE CONSIDERED A DEBT AND MUST BE PAID IN ORDER TO GRADUATE.
Notebook Contract: The Science Department has implemented a notebook contract that will be followed in all science classes. To download the departmental contract, click here. (Must have Acrobat Reader. Click here to download.)
Teacher Websites: Several of our teachers have designed or are in the process of designing their own websites and links to them can be found under their names above. Included in most of them are assignment lists, course syllabi, and other course information.
AP Exams: Killian offers 5 Advanced Placement science courses: Biology, Chemistry, Physics B, Physics C, and Environmental Science. For more information on the Advanced Placement Program, please visit AP@collegeboard.com
