The AP Biology course is designed to be the equivalent of a year-long college introductory biology course.  Enrolling in AP Bio means that you have undertaken a personal responsibility to work hard and manage your time to keep up with a rigorous curriculum.  In order to maintain a fun, intellectually stimulating, and balanced year, carefully examine your academic load and outside activities, and make sure that you are willing and prepared to commit AT LEAST one hour per night (more on weekends) to AP Bio.  Your success in (and enjoyment of) this class will directly reflect the amount of energy you invest.
