    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This AP Biology class was a tremendous asset to my high school education, mainly because the teacher, Mrs. Payne, is an amazing teacher. She would help you with anything if you didn't understand the course material and she was usually patient enough until you understood what you needed to know.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was most definitely the ecosystem project. It was a huge project that lasted for several months (from about September to about January) where you, or you and a partner, would take care of an organism and a plant for that duration of time. During that period, you would record practically everything about both your plant and animal including but not limited to: how much water they would get, how much the living organism has grown, the temperature of the room in which the organism is in, how much sunlight your plant has received, how much food/nutrients are they getting etc. After all of this, we put together a power point that explained how the organism lives in the wild, what they need to survive, predators/prey etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely look over your notes. Not only will they help you understand the discussion, but they will also help you stay in pace with the class because it can be easy to be left behind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any Stuttgart High school student who has a love or passion for science. This class teaches you about the ins and outs of your own body, as well as other living organisms around you. Mrs. Yancey, the instructor for the class, wants the best for you in her class. She wants you to strive for excellence, and with her help anything is possible.

    Course highlights:

    This course was a stepping stone on my way to becoming a student in Hot Springs at ASMSA (Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts), but while I was a student at Stuttgart High school, this course taught me that biology means more than just your own body. Biology describes the environment you live in, and how to take care of it along with the organisms that live in it. From microscopic to towering trees, this course taught me how to understand and interact with them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do every bit of your homework, that's what will really nail the ideas into your head. Repetition and memorization are some of the most important skills required in biology courses.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I plan on pursuing a career in Dentistry and the AP Biology course has not only helped me advance my skills for college but give me a base for furthering my education.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning the structure of the cell components, how they work, and how they divide.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is difficult but will allow you to learn the study skills you will need for later in life. Anyone taking this course should understand to not taking it lightly and use the knowledge for college biology.
