International Baccalaureate Biology (Higher Level)

Based on the premise that science is a process, not an accumulation of facts, IB Biology will encourage students’ intellectual curiosity. A two-year project and laboratory based course, IB Biology is designed to provide opportunities for scientific study and creativity within a global context while providing substantial training in analysis and critical thinking. With emphasis on research, problem solving, scientific investigation and experimental design, students will examine life on all organizational levels: from the molecular to the cellular level, from organ systems to whole organisms, from whole organisms to entire ecosystems.

Prerequisite: Introductory Biology

* International Baccalaureate (IB) courses are two years in length, taken during a student’s 11th and 12th grade years.
