    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it's so informative. Though it's not actually an elective, and you will have to complete the work anyway, it's good to make the best of it. Mrs. Palazi was always clear and concise, and she deserves you attention and respect.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about cell biology and plant life. I remember that in my year we went to nurture he garden in the court yard for a bit of hands on activity- and we learned how to accurately use a microscope, which was pretty cool!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's really important to participate in class for this course- following along is key. While, in some classes, you may be able to look back at your notes and piece lessons together, this class is completely different. Since this is your first high school science class, there will be a lot of terminology you may not know, so it's important to listen to Mrs. Palazi as she lectures. Study hard and pay attention and you'll do just fine!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In our school, while biology is required, I reccomend the course because it's very interesting to learn about. I also reccomend this course because in order to pass the Biology Keystone, common knowledge of this course is needed.

    Course highlights:

    This course helped me to achieve an advanced score on the Biology Keystone. Even in every day conversation I can recall things I learned in the class, most recently this happened when I was having a conversation about stem cells, explaining their use to my mother.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to pass this course I had to read a lot of the chapters. Those who failed to read any sections we were told to struggled to achieve high grades in the class. Making real life connections really helped me to understand the Biology concepts more as well. Also studying diagrams helped me because I tend to be a visual learner.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Teacher is notorious for making the course hard for the students. Also is very strict on assignments. She fails at least 1 student per year.

    Course highlights:

    Learned basic biology because I read the book outside of class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get on her bad side. Best thing to do is just do your work, and ignore her.
