Science

The Science courses focuses on the principal areas essential to understanding the development of concepts of matter, energy, and forces, and their applications through exploratory investigations and activities. Students will learn the unifying concepts and processes of science, structure of atoms, structure and properties of matter, chemical reactions, entropy and conservation of energym interactions of energy and matter, motions and forces, interactions among science, technology, and society. Laboratory investigations, which include the use of scientific research, measurement, laboratory technologies, and safety procedures, are an integral part of this course.

This subject area also focuses on the principal areas essential to understanding composition, properties, and changes associated with matter and their applications. Students will experience the nature of science matter: its classification, structure, and changes, atomic theory, the periodic table bonding, chemical formulas, chemical reactions, and balanced equations stoichiometry, reaction rates and equilibrium, acids and bases, oxidation and reduction, behavior of gases, dynamics of energy, and chemistry of life.

AP Chemistry

This course is designed to provide students with a solid foundation equivalent to a first year college level chemistry experience. Students are given the opportunity to be self directed learners by reading an assignment with some understanding of the concepts and theories prior to coming to class.

Academic Environment and Student Achievement:
  • National High School’s courses are designed to challenge our students. Each course includes extensive professional-level readings supplemental to the assigned text or texts, and requires the assimilation and measurable application of large blocks of knowledge.
  • Assignments are designed to promote strong critical thinking, analytical, and communicative skills. Each course has been developed and reviewed by multiple field experts, and is subject to regular revision, as the faculty, administration and National Advisory Council deems appropriate.
  • In tandem with course syllabi and programmatic development, faculties of the highest caliber (nationally-recruited) select and approve the text or texts and readings for each course.
  • Each course (general education courses, core courses, specialized field-specific courses) requires several critical reading/writing assignments (with emphasis on both content analysis and communicative skills), three exams, a comprehensive final examination, with an approved proctor in place. The final examinations are notably challenging, as they require thorough assimilation of ALL course materials.
  • Qualified faculty and significant learning resources are in place to facilitate and foster student success: that is the High School’s ultimate objective. At the same time, it befalls the student to produce work worthy of the diploma for which he or she is a candidate and such standards of excellence.
