courses, such as Advanced Biology, Chemistry, Physics,
Functions/Statistics/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Advanced English
for both juniors and seniors and Advanced History. USA students who
participated in these courses experienced significant increases in
their MEAP and ACT scores.

also offer a full complement of AP courses, foreign languages
(Latin, Chinese, German and French) and other unique classes, such
