    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teachers at Red Mountain High School are very helpful and class sizes are relatively small which allows for individual teacher to student tutoring in class.

    Course highlights:

    We performed multiple experiments such as DNA Extraction, Blood Typing, and Plant Tissue Culture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell other students to always ask questions about why each step is performed in a given experiment. This will allow for the student to have a maximum understanding of the concept we are learning.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class that is perfect for students interested in biological sciences as a major. It prepares you for what you are going to learn in college and gives you opportunities to become a lab tech.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are the labs. You learn the skills you need to learn while keeping it fun. Plant tissue culture was my favorite.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you complete the quick guides for the labs because that's a huge part of your grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    With Mrs. Derryberry as your teacher, you can't fail. No matter how much you struggle with a new unit or you just can't focus on the labs, Derryberry will take extra time out of her busy schedule to help you. This is a very hands-on class where we completed new labs at least three times a month. If you learn better from talking with the class, the science conference inspired whiteboard meetings will be great for you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so many bioitech skills from learning this class. I always tell people this is the best biology class you will ever take in high school. You learn a variety of things from how to work with expensive equipment like a gel electrophoresis and a centrifuge to cloning plants and learning the building blocks of all living organisms.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is hardly any homework in this class, as long as you finish things during class time. You have to design your own labs and do some of your own research, but the teachers are very willing to help you with any problems you might be having. This counts as an advanced science credit at Red Mountain.
