AP Environmental Science is designed for highly motivated college-bound students. 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 both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems and to engage in the study and monitoring of our local community both in the laboratory and in the field. These studies will include population studies of local ecosystems and air, water and soil analysis.
