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.

"Congratulations to the Science Department's Student of the Month for January, Josie Johnson. Josie is an invaluable member of this year's AP Physics class. She asks insightful questions that indicate she is truly pursuing an in-depth understanding of the subject matter. In a class of high-performing students, she sets a fantastic example for others with the amount of effort she demonstrates during and outside of class. Again, congratulations and thank you, Josie."
