graduation requirements
Graduation Requirements

LPS requires students earn 15 credits (3 semesters) for graduation requirements.

Most four year colleges require 3 years of science with at least 2 selected from biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science. Two classes must include laboratory instruction.

All LHS science classes except for the basic science classes meet admission requirements for science and laboratory instruction.

9 th grade requirements
9th Grade Requirements

Starting in the fall of 2006-2007, all Freshmen will be required to take Physical Science and GeoScience.

Freshmen interested in the advanced science courses will be allowed to take Biology following application and approval from the department chairman. GeoScience is required, in addition to Biology, during 9th or 10th grade year.

scopes of study
Scopes of Study

A Scope of Study is a plan outlining the courses which will prepare each student for their academic goals.

The LHS Science department ascribes to 4 different scopes which are defined by either graduation or post-secondary education goals:

  • Basic – meeting only LPS graduation requirements
  • Introductory – for technical & vocational schools or four-year programs not requiring science.
  • Preparatory – for four-year programs requiring some science
  • Advanced – for four-year science-intensive programs
scope and courses basic
Scope and Courses: Basic

Students in 11th or 12 grades that are interested in earning credits for graduation and not planning on any post-secondary education.

Careers may include: food service, telemarketing, & labor services

Suggested Courses: Basic Life, Physical and Earth Science

scope and courses introductory
Scope and Courses: Introductory

Students interested in some post-secondary education. Preparation for community college, two-year associate program or possibly a four-year non-science program.

Careers may include: electronics, cosmotology, legal-assistant, mechanics, HVAC, secretary, animal science, etc.

Suggested Courses: Applied Biology or Biology, Physical Science, GeoScience

scope and courses preparatory
Scope and Courses: Preparatory

Students interested in a four-year post-secondary education with non-science emphasis but requiring science for admissions or as part of a program.

Careers may include: education, business, architecture, construction management, arts, communications, etc.

Suggested Courses: Applied Chemistry, Applied Physics, Biology, Astronomy, Environmental Studies, Zoology, Botany, Earth Systems, Animal Behavior, Genetics

scope and courses advanced
Scope and Courses: Advanced

Students interested in a four year post-secondary education with an emphasis in science, engineering, or medicine.

Careers may include: medicine, engineering, sciences: chemist, physicist, meterologist, biologist, veterinarian, food scientist, forensic scientist, etc.

Suggested Courses: Diff Biology, Chemistry (Reg, Diff & Adv), Physics (Reg, Diff & Advanced), Microbiology, Genetics, Anatomy/Physiology
