After Chemistry, then what? Great upper HS science courses from TPS!

You survived Chemistry! What’s next?

States generally require a student to take two or more lab science courses in high school, and colleges generally expect to see four years of high school science courses. Most students take Biology and Chemistry as their lab science, but then what?

TPS offers great upper high school science courses, like:


“I would recommend this course to others because it is challenging yet possible to do well in, even if you are someone who finds physics difficult.” — Anna D

Anatomy and Physiology

“As someone who wants a career in the health field (but unsure what specific occupation), this class was crucial and incredibly helpful for me to get some knowledge of the human body and its systems so I could narrow down what my interests are. My parents (who are both in the medical field) were amazed that our class covered the details that we did. In addition, the information we learned was both deep and helpful; I did not feel like I was learning too much or in too much detail.” — Leilani W

Forensic Science

“Anyone fascinated with crime investigation and the objective aspect of it will devour this class. It covers almost every aspect of investigating crime, focusing on the individual fields of study, including roles, and the courtroom process itself.” — Gabrielle S

Marine Biology

“This course is extremely fun. It was incredibly informative and I learned a lot. I learned things I had not known before and I learned new aspects to things I already knew. I have always loved marine life and animals in general but I learned so much more about marine resources, marine life I didn’t know as much about, and performed experiments I hadn’t before. The teacher is the best teacher I have ever had and she is really good at encouraging and answering questions. She is very good at answering questions in and out of class and is just really fun to have as a teacher. She makes things lively and I don’t feel like I am just in a lecture but rather that I am experiencing the ocean at my kitchen counter. It is awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone remotely interested in anything marine.” — Sadie C

TPS also offers effective AP Science courses, like:

AP Physics

“I thoroughly enjoyed taking AP Physics this year and I feel very prepared for the AP exam! I recommend this course for three principal reasons: the academic rigor of this course, the interactive classroom atmosphere, and the abundant study materials and resources. For those students and parents that want an academically rigorous course, this AP Physics will not disappoint. Although this was my first year taking courses with The Potter’s School, I have taken online courses for the past six academic years and I can confidently say that I have been in few classroom atmospheres that match this course’s caliber.” — Elliott J

AP Biology

“Enthusiastic teacher who clearly loves his subject. Class is rigorous,  but carefully planned out according to the text material.” — Matthias H

AP Environmental Science

“Exceptional and refreshing course. Combines many different standard science courses into one: physics, chemistry, earth science, some human sciences regarding demographics and health, and statistics. This incorporation of different sciences then is put under the lens of environmental science, learning extraordinary new things on the base of old subjects. Teacher is also very experienced in the environmental science field and can explain questions that the textbook cannot, so the student is not only prepared in knowledge for the AP exam, but also learns in a dynamic and interesting way.” — Keziah S
