What is biology?

Biology is the study of living things. In high school biology class, you learn about the main ideas of modern biology including cells, DNA, immune system, genetics, evolution, and ecology.

◈Inclusion Practices:

I will work with all students to help them be successful in my class, including providing multiple levels of instruction and activities and following all modifications and accommodations.


The land that surrounds us is part of who we are; it reflects our histories. We acknowledge the Indigenous homelands that our school and city is built on. Land acknowledgement is only one small part of supporting Indigenous communities. We hope our land acknowledgment statement will inspire others to stand with us in solidarity with Native nations.
