**NEW FINE ARTS COURSE AVAILABLE 2019-2020**
Music Appreciation (FA15) Credit: 1 Grade Level: 9-12 GPA: Regular
Course Description: This is a non-performance class that explores music of various styles through listening experiences. All styles of music are covered (classical, folk, music theater, jazz, popular, etc.). Investigations of composers and performers integral to the styles are included in the class. Activities include listening, discussions, projects, and presentations on each style of music.
**NEW ADVANCED SCIENCE COURSE OPTION AVAILABLE 2019-2020**
Freshmen students interested in pursuing an advanced science track will have the option to take Advanced Biology and Advanced Chemistry in a block 2 period format, completing one course (Biology or Chemistry) in the first semester and the other course in the second semester. Students who complete Biology in the first semester will take the Biology EOC in December and students who complete Biology in the second semester will take the Biology EOC in May. Both Biology and Chemistry courses in this format are advanced and will be assigned grade points on a 5.0 scale. Students will need to drop an elective course from their course requests when choosing this option because this will take up two consecutive periods in the day.
**CLARIFICATION ON AP COURSE OFFERINGS**
