SFUSD - Two years of science (one year in a biological science and one year in a physical science). Chemistry and physics are physical sciences. The rest in the table below are biological sciences.

CSU & UC requires 2 years laboratory science (9-12); A third year of science is recommended by UC.


These are the prerequisites for entering a science course for the fall semester. Successful completion of the fall semester in a particular is required for continuation onto the spring semester of the same course.


Please be aware of the workload prior to signing up for a course.

Do not sign up for more than you can handle.
