  • Vật lý (lớp 9)

    Why does a star shine? How does a television work? How do we generate electricity? This course focuses on how the principles of physics work in the real world. Students learn to design experiments in order to get meaningful results that further their knowledge. Hands-on challenges give students experience in applying their understanding and improving their iterative designs. Classes are a mix of lecture, discussion, demonstration, small-group work, and laboratory exploration. Physics lays the foundation for students to more thoroughly understand the concepts in the chemistry and biology classes that follow, and it prepares them to take AP Physics in the future.
  • Hóa học (lớp 10)

    How we experience everything in the world—what we see, feel, and smell—is affected by microscopic particles and their interactions. In this course, students approach and solve new problems using the fundamentals of chemistry and rely on the careful and insightful application of logic to reveal why material behaves as it does. The course covers a wide range of topics, including:
    • Nhiệt động lực học, để giải thích tại sao một số phản ứng xảy ra trong khi những người khác không
    • Động học, để hiểu vai trò của chất xúc tác để tăng tốc độ phản ứng quan trọng
    • Lý thuyết lượng tử, để khám phá các tính chất đặc biệt của nước cần thiết cho cuộc sống
    • Hóa học hữu cơ, để nghiên cứu các phân tử sinh học rất quan trọng đối với con người để tồn tại 
    Hóa học nuôi dưỡng cảm giác phấn khích khi khám phá, được hỗ trợ bởi các thí nghiệm, hoạt động và cuộc biểu tình thường xuyên trong phòng thí nghiệm. Học sinh muốn đi sâu hơn vào hóa học có cơ hội để có AP Hóa học trong năm học cơ sở hoặc cao cấp của họ.
  • Biology (11th grade)

    Biology is an introductory survey of the biological sciences beginning with the biochemical, genetic, and evolutionary tools used by all living organisms. Complex systems are examined including the biosphere and the human body with an emphasis on research, case studies, collaborative lab work, and presentations. The core laboratory component is experimental design and methods of data analysis. Labs are constructed as experimental activities, observations, or mini-lab demonstrations. Students use computers and scientific software for data collection and analysis, write lab reports, share oral presentations, and complete online projects.

  • Ap Hóa học

    The equivalent of a first-year college general chemistry course, AP Chemistry goes into greater depth and detail on the material covered in tenth-grade chemistry. The course emphasizes lab work and quantitative and qualitative applications. Topics include the structure and properties of matter, chemical reactions, thermodynamics, and equilibrium. Other disciplines—particularly biology and biochemistry—are integrated into class topics. Cooperative work skills, a willingness to ask questions, and a deep well of curiosity are valuable assets for every AP Chemistry student. This class prepares students for the AP Chemistry Exam.
  • AP Khoa học Môi trường

    This course provides students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing such problems. Environmental science incorporates elements of biology, chemistry, sociology, geology, and design. It focuses on how the ecological relationships between organisms and their environments are influenced by environmental change. Topics include the impact of governmental policies on human population growth, industrial and corporate agriculture’s effects on human and environmental health, and the latest innovations in city design and sustainability. Highlights include designing experiments at Lake Temescal, testing soil quality from students’ own neighborhoods, and meeting guest speakers from the water policy, fisheries, and energy fields. This class prepares students for the AP Environmental Science Exam.
  • Ap Vật lý

    Which will win in a downhill race: a bowling ball or a doughnut? Why is a car the safest place to be in a lightning strike? How fast do you need to go to escape from the Earth’s gravitational pull? In this course, students take observations about the world and use them to build abstract models that allow them to predict sophisticated behavior. The concepts of the derivative and the anti-derivative are used from the beginning of the course. AP Physics focuses on classical mechanics and electromagnetism in preparation for the AP Physics C Exam.
  • Nghiên cứu ứng dụng: Chương trình nghiên cứu STEM

    College Prep’s STEM program is for students interested in getting hands-on research experience in a broad array of STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The course begins with a spring semester seminar (STEM Research Part I) that provides foundational scientific knowledge and analytical skills. During discussion-based classes, students learn how to read primary scientific literature, analyze and critique raw data, and work as a productive member of a research team. The core of the program takes place during the summer when students are matched with research mentors for full-time, six-week internships. In the fall, the program concludes with a semester-long seminar (STEM Research Part II) in which students prepare a poster about their summer research and deliver a formal scientific talk. Most placements are in labs at UCSF or UC Berkeley.
  • Thiên văn học

    Khóa học mở rộng tâm trí này điều tra vũ trụ, bắt đầu với hệ mặt trời (bao gồm các hành tinh, sao chổi và tiểu hành tinh), tiếp theo là các ngôi sao (sinh, tiến hóa và chết), và kết thúc bằng vũ trụ học (cách vũ trụ được tạo ra, trạng thái hiện tại của nó và cuối cùng là cách nó sẽ kết thúc). Các chủ đề bao gồm siêu tân tinh, sao neutron, sao xung và lỗ đen (bao gồm cả những gì sẽ xảy ra nếu bạn rơi vào một). Các lý thuyết tương đối của Einstein, cần thiết cho quan niệm về thời gian và không gian, được đề cập sâu sắc, dẫn đến một cuộc thảo luận về du hành thời gian và các nghịch lý của nó. Các điểm nổi bật khác bao gồm du hành vũ trụ, sự sống trên các hành tinh khác và vật chất tối. 
  • Developmental Biology

    How does a single cell transform itself into a multicellular, complex, functional adult organism? This course covers the major events of animal development, focusing on the genetic, cellular, and biochemical processes that drive these events, including the regulation of gene expression, cell-cell signaling, and cell shape change. The course also covers common techniques and strategies used in developmental biology research. Students learn to design and interpret experiments to answer questions about development, and discuss and analyze primary articles from the literature. Finally, developmental biology is connected to related fields like evolutionary biology and human disease.
  • Forensic Science

    Forensic science is the application of scientific principles and techniques to matters of criminal justice, especially relating to the collection, examination, and analysis of physical evidence. This course teaches about the tools, techniques, and protocols used in investigating crime scenes. Topics include the history of forensics, crime scene analysis, physical and chemical analysis of evidence, toxicology, blood and DNA, entomology and time of death, fingerprinting, blood spatter, and ballistics. There is detailed study of the protocols for collecting evidence to eliminate contamination and misinterpretation and how forensic scientists evaluate evidence to avoid bias. The course includes hands-on labs, simulations, case studies, and a mock crime scene to develop practical and theoretical aspects of forensics. 
  • Các vấn đề trong khoa học

    How should we decide who will get organ transplants when the need exceeds supply? Is it ethical for physicians to provide lethal doses of medication to the terminally ill? Should parents be allowed to withhold medical treatment from children on religious grounds? These are the sorts of questions addressed in this discussion-based seminar that focuses on scientifically anchored ethical dilemmas. Students use the formal principles of bioethics to refine arguments. The course draws upon a wide variety of academic and popular media sources to examine how scientific research is changing our understanding of the world, and how society, in turn, is being transformed by scientific tools.
  • Molecular Genetics

    This course examines the biochemistry of gene expression and how that knowledge can be applied to technologies such as vaccine design, genome editing, and personalized medicine. Students dive into the molecular structure of DNA, the mechanics of DNA replication, and the regulation of protein synthesis. Some of the more recent discoveries in molecular genetics are introduced, including non-coding DNA, RNA interference, and epigenetics. On lab days, students learn how to use several techniques needed to examine how information moves from the nucleic acid-based genome to the amino acid-based proteome that conducts the cellular work of the body.
  • Neuroscience

    This course investigates the brain. How did it develop? What are the different parts of the brain and what are their functions? How does it actually work? How do pharmaceuticals affect it? How is it involved in vision, hearing, body sense, and motion? The class explores how the brain affects human behavior, such as sleep, sexuality, emotions, learning, memory, and human communication. Students read case histories of patients to learn about neurological disorders, their causes, and how they affect behavior and consider the philosophical aspects of the mind—the seat of consciousness, thought, and feeling.
It gives me pleasure that these extraordinarily smart kids—who are going to be decision makers, movers and shakers, and perhaps go into science and medicine—will have thought deeply about these topics as young adults and will hopefully continue to be informed thinkers throughout their lives and careers.
