High School Course Directory

These courses are self-paced, without direct teacher instruction. This means students can complete the work at their own pace and are required to read and comprehend the content on their own. It is important that students are able to manage their time, schedule their progress and complete the class in the time frame set by their district.

Chemistry is a course designed to give students understanding of the basic concepts of chemical principles. The topics covered include structure and properties of matter, nuclear processes, chemical reactions, periodic table, bonding and intermolecular forces, chemical conversions, stoichiometry, solutions, kinetics and equilibrium.  This course will involve virtual lab experiments.

This is recommended for students that have completed Algebra 1.

Earth Systems Science
Earth System Science is an interdisciplinary study to develop an understanding of the scope, basic facts, principles, and concepts of contemporary issues in environmental science. It is designed to develop a deeper understanding of the interactions between the different parts of the Earth – how matter and energy move between the systems of the Earth and how human interactions are influencing the way Earth’s systems now work.

It is recommended as a 10th-12th grade course, designed to be a more engaging, student-friendly study of the global environment. It would be in the students’ best interest to have taken Earth Science before engaging in this course.

The Art of Computer Science
This course  is intended to provide an overview of the concepts of Computer Science to meet the Iowa Core Computer Science Standards 3A (Sem 1 Syllabus) and Computer Science Standards 3B (Sem 2 Syllabus). It is not a tutorial for learning a specific programming language, although students will learn about how computer systems and programs work through Javascript. Nor is it a guide for how to do a web search or use a spreadsheet. It can, however, help you to better understand the digital infrastructure of the world in which we live by exposing the foundation upon which it's built. More than that, it could improve your critical thinking skills.

Students are required to take Semester 1 before taking semester 2. A solid math background would be extremely beneficial for both sections.
