About the Science Department

The Ponderosa High School Science Department has a variety of science classes available to students. It is recommended that college bound students take a minimum of ESE (Earth, Space, Environmental), Biology and Chemistry. In addition to this core class schedule, students should consider one of the AP classes. Currently AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, and AP Physics are offered. The Department also offers one semester elective classes that are interest based. All classes are laboratory based.

 


Student of the Month

Congratulations to the Science Department's Student of the Month for April, Brianna Googins! Bri is a leader in the classroom. She always strives to learn as much as she can. She constantly demonstrates a joy of learning. She is the first student in the door to work on her lab and she comes in on off days to record the progress of her lab. Bri has learned a lot this year. She is a positive leader amongst her peers.
