WJ Science Department
The goal of the Walter Johnson HS science department is to help students develop a variety of critical thinking skills including: making inferences, designing experiments, and using dimensional analysis to calculate the value of a variable.
In addition to the NGSS aligned MCPS core coursework, we offer many elective courses including forensic science, astronomy and molecular biology. Furthermore, our AP program offers a variety of biological and physical science options including: AP Environmental Science, AP Biology (double period), AP Chemistry (double period), AP Physics 1 and AP Physics C (this course covers Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism).
