Chemistry is the study of the composition of matter and its fundamental properties and behaviors.

The chemistry program at NMH begins with introductory, honors, or advanced-level Chemistry. After Chemistry, interested students may take the elective course in forensics, provided they have also taken Biology.

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

For more information, and to see course descriptions, see the Curriculum Guide.
