Course required for Graduation

DHHS requires 3.0 credits of Science for graduation.

The placement of courses in this chart is what is typical.  Please carefully read the course descriptions for detailed information and prerequisites. The chart at the end of the science section provides another view of the sequence of these courses. 

In the Science Department, Levels 1 and 2 are defined as follows:

Level 1
Suggested for students who have demonstrated exceptional skills in math and science and reading and have a strong interest in science.
Level 2
Suggested for students who have demonstrated adequate skills in math, science, and reading and are interested in pursuing a college preparatory program.
Note:
  • Students should be guided by the prerequisite list in each course description.
  • Students should not sacrifice breadth of coverage for concentration in any area.  
  • The Madison Board of Education requires three credits of science as a graduation requirement. 
  • All science courses are considered to be lab based courses.
  • All courses, with the exception of AP and ECE, are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and Practices.
