The San Rafael High School Science program consists of college preparatory offerings of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Physiology. Our accelerated program consists of honors courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics using college level texts and approaches. This advanced program continues in Advanced Placement courses in Biology and Physics (an independent study course), and this year we are starting to offer AP Environmental Science. A preparatory Physical/ Earth Science course provides experience in science laboratory methodology and research approaches for students before taking Biology and Chemistry. In addition, the Science department provides a Science based one semester Health course for all students in their freshman year.
