Welcome to the Fallbrook High School Science Department!  
Fallbrook High School offers courses with a variety of rigor for each subject area.  The science teachers believe that students should be challenging themselves in science at the most rigorous level possible.  We advise all students to choose the course they think will be most challenging for them.  If a student finds that they are struggling at this level, then the student and teacher can discuss a level change.  When students select science courses in this way, they find the right rigor for them in a way that promotes the most confidence.  For example, a student selects AP Biology in the 9th grade and finds that they have chosen a course that is too rigorous for their understanding.  When this student levels down to Pre-AP Biology, they have already experienced some of the content and thus they can feel confident and be an expert in this new transition.
