Secondary Education Curriculum

The school endeavors to provide students with life-learning experiences, encouraging them to develop their fullest potential at all levels: intellectual, social, emotional, moral, and physical.

The school requires that a student accumulate a minimum of thirty-two (32) credits over a period of four years in order to graduate from high school. A student may earn one credit by undertaking and successfully completing a course of study for which a minimum of 110 hours of instruction has been scheduled. Half credits may be earned by completing 55 to 75 hours.

Secondary programs are offered in both English and Spanish in the areas of Literature (American, World, Hispanic, and Contemporary), Grammar, Mathematics (algebra I, II, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus), Science (biology, physiology, chemistry, physics, and human anatomy and physiology) Social Studies (American History I and II, World History, World Geography, US Government, Sociology and Psychology), foreign languages (French and Mandarin), Art History, Computer Science and Physical Education. Robotics and architecture are also available starting in eleventh grade.

The Americas Bicultural School offers such activities as a Literature and Journalism Club, Junior Achievement, Model UN, an Art Club, a Debate Team, and community service activities and others. As students mature and follow their quest for truth and personal growth they need opportunities to integrate in diversified activities that are complementary to the curriculum.
