horizontal rule

At LCHS, the AP Biology course consists of 2 semesters (36 weeks).  The first semester is labeled Honors Biology II  and second semester is labeled AP Biology.  The two semesters together make up the AP Biology curriculum.  Students enrolled in AP Biology must be enrolled in both semesters.  Students enrolled in semester one only (Honors Biology II) will still follow the AP curriculum and all AP assignments.
