science department

  • All members of the Tempe High Science Department provide our students with high-level educational experiences to best prepare them for a 21st century world. Whether students transition straight into a career or pursue higher education at an in-state or out-of-state institution they will be well prepared for whatever comes after high school. Our students progress through Integrated Science and Biology in their first two years and have the option for an upper division science elective.

Honors and IB Program at Tempe High

  • At Tempe High School we encourage students to be best prepared for their futures by taking any of our Honors level courses, such as Honors Biology, Honors Chemistry (Dual Enrollment), Honors Physics, and Honors Anatomy. These courses are especially focused to prepare students for higher education. As the home for the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, our students who are full diploma candidates will progress through Honors Biology, Honors Chemistry, Honors Physics 1, and IB Physics 2. This four year approach is directly aligned with the pre-requisites of highly-selective universities and programs. However, any student interested in STEM is encouraged to consider one of our Honors or IB courses at Tempe High School.
