Miami Palmetto Senior High School will be adding an Environmental and Science Masters Academy to their curriculum this Fall.
The proposed curriculum is as follows:
- 9th grade – Honors or Gifted Biology, Honors Geometry or Honors Algebra II
- 10th grade – Honors or Gifted Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, Honors Algebra II or Pre-calculus or Analysis of Functions
- 11th grade – Two of the following science courses – AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics, Honors Marine Biology, Honors Anatomy/Phisiology or Honors Solar Energy and Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB or BC or AP Statistics
- 12th grade – Research 4 or Honors Solar Energy and AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics, Honors Marine Biology, or Honors Anatomy/Physiology; AP Calculus AB or BC, AP Statistics or Multivariable Calculus/Differential Equations.
Considering that MPSH’s AP Environmental Science passing rate last year was 90%, compared to about a 40% national average, and that MPSH won the Lexus Eco Challenge and moves on to the Final Challenge, the new Masters Academy should prove to be a challenging yet fun program for students who want to excel in the environmental science field.
No wonder MPSH is one of the top rated schools in Miami-Dade County.
