Fighting climate change one idea at a time
Physics is the study of matter and energy, and the principles that govern their interactions in space and time.
The physics program at NMH begins with Physics at the introductory, honors, or advanced level for freshmen and sophomores. Freshmen may also take an additional half-credit elective in robotics. Juniors and seniors who wish to take physics as an elective should consider STEM Physics or Astronomy, while those who are interested in engineering should consider our half-credit elective. Highly qualified students of all ages may also apply to take the Advanced Placement Physics 1 course, which is designed to be taught as a first-year physics course for talented students with strong math backgrounds. Further AP-level physics courses include AP Physics 2 and AP Physics C. All AP courses in physics require written application and department approval.
