Classes and Programs

Within the SMA schedule, many honors classes are integrated. These classes include Honors English 9, Honors English 10, Advance Placement Government 9, Honors Biology, Honors Earth Science, Honors Chemistry, Honors Physics, and Honors Algebra II. A.P. classes are also strongly encouraged including A.P. World History, A.P. U.S. History, A.P. English 11, A.P. English 12, a required A.P. Math (A.P. Calculus AB, A.P. Statistics), and a required A.P. Science (A.P. Biology, A.P. Chemistry, A.P. Environmental, A.P. Physics).

Electives in the SMA also add to the program's uniqueness. Electives are based on interest and may not be available every year. The SMA electives in previous years have included Astrophysics, Bacteriology, Biotechnology, Computer Aided Drafting and Design (C.A.D.D.), Cryptology, Design Engineering and Patents, Ecology, Forensic Chemistry, Fundamentals of Kinesiology, Genetics, Linear Algebra, Materials Science, Mathematical Logic, Microcontrollers with Application of Fuzzy Logic, Organic Chemistry, Plant Physiology (proposed), Principles of Engineering, Robotics, and Sports Physiology.

The SMA has a unique class called Science Research and Technology (SRT) that SMA students are required to take each of four years at the SMA. The first three years of the SRT curriculum teach students about various academic fields and prepare them for their fourth and final year of SRT, in which they complete capstone projects. Students are paired with professionals in their fields of choice to mentor them for their projects. Seniors have two one and a half hour long periods every other school day to complete their projects, which they present at the end of the year. They make posters to present their projects to the students, teachers, family, and professionals that come to the gallery walk that is held near the end of the school year. Throughout the process they have to perform research, write papers, and present their projects multiple times. All qualified Aberdeen High students can take part in the SMA Electives listed in the previous paragraph, but only SMA students can take SRT.

Famous quotes containing the words programs and/or classes:

    We attempt to remember our collective American childhood, the way it was, but what we often remember is a combination of real past, pieces reshaped by bitterness and love, and, of course, the video past—the portrayals of family life on such television programs as “Leave it to Beaver” and “Father Knows Best” and all the rest.
    Richard Louv (20th century)

    Of all classes the rich are the most noticed and the least studied.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
