All students must earn 2 credits in science to meet graduation requirements. However, students are strongly encouraged to take at least one science course each year as many colleges require more than 2 years of science. It is strongly recommended that students take Earth Science and Biology in their first two years of high school to prepare for the CAPT. Students desiring a greater opportunity to take more science electives and Advanced Placement science courses should choose to take Biology as their elective in addition to taking Earth Science during their freshman year. Students should elect this at the CCP and/or Honors levels only.

All science courses incorporate laboratory activities into the curriculum and therefore are all considered laboratory classes even if they do not meet for a double lab period.

The following classes have a double lab period that meets once every six days:
Biology (H, CCP)AP Biology
Chemistry (H, CCP, CP)AP Chemistry
Physics (H)AP Environmental Science
AP Physics (meets every day)
