Science DepartmentDepartment Chair: Anne Elsner
The Center Grove High School Science Department offers 22 different courses - 6 of which students can get AP or dual credit. These 6 include ACP Chemistry, Geology, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics and AP Enviornmental Science. We offer many unique courses that other schools don't offer such as Forensics and Organic Chemistry.
CGHS recommend that all students take at least 3 out of the 4 core science courses (biology, chemistry, earth space and physics) to have a well rounded eduction in science. If a student qualifies for the honors versions, students are highly encouraged to challenge themselves by taking these options. There are both year long and one semester science electives offered including meteorolgy, astronomy, microbiology, genetics, and organic chemistry. This department also offers a Biomedical path within Project Lead the Way.
In our department, there are 11 teachers with over half that have their masters degrees.
