High School Science Program

The state of Maryland requires all students to complete 3 credits in science for high school graduation.  Additionally, all students must take Biology or Honors Biology and meet the Maryland Biology High School Assessment requirement.

Students in Wicomico County have a variety of courses from which to choose.  Note that some courses have prerequisites - see the Course Catalog for details.  Also note that all courses may not be available at every school.  Course availability is determined by enrollment requests and availability of space and faculty.
