Biology is the study of life and the processes that govern living organisms and their evolution.

The biology program at NMH begins with introductory, honors, or advanced-level Biology, which meet the NMH graduation requirement. After completing Biology, interested students may choose from elective courses in Human Physiology or Genetics and Ethics.

Students who wish to take the SAT II subject test or prepare for the AP exam in biology may choose between the Extended Advanced Placement Biology course or the AP Biology course, both of which require written application and department approval.

For more information, and to see course descriptions, see the biology section of the online Curriculum Guide.
