Biology EOC Review Sessions

For the next few weeks, the Biology teachers will be providing review sessions in preparation for the EOC test.  These sessions will be held from April 23 through May 4 from 2:00 until 3:00 after school, every day.  They will focus on essential topics for the test.  Students should contact their Biology teachers to sign up, find topic schedules, and check for room assignments.  Parents may call AHS and ask for an administrator or guidance counselor for more information.  Online support can be found here at the Biology Resources link.
