Chalk Talk: Advanced Science Courses Key to Success
Whether or not your child pursues a career in the sciences, taking advanced science courses in high school is extremely important. Taking advanced classes of any kind helps prepare students for the rigors of college studies. But advanced science courses also ensure students have the analytical, problem solving, and evaluative skills necessary for so many jobs in today’s world. Typically, colleges and universities require students to have at least three years of laboratory sciences, including biology and chemistry. Some institutions of higher learning even require four years of science studies, to include courses like environmental science and physics. Taking these classes in high school, and taking their advanced versions, such as AP, IB, or concurrent enrollment courses, will give your child a leg up as they move on to college.
