In the fall of 2015, MPS will implement a new high school core Science sequence that better addresses the required Minnesota academic standards, aligns with Minnesota Department of Education course credit graduation requirements, provides exposure to all science areas within the first two years of high school, and offers more choice in science course options.
The sequence includes the following Science courses:
9th grade Physical Science*
10th grade Biology
11th/12th grade Physics or Chemistry
*Note: Physical Science addresses required Minnesota academic standards in the areas of Physical Science, Earth Science, and Nature of Science and Engineering
