Did You Know?
The Science Department is pleased to announce King’s High School now offers FOUR Science courses as Concurrent Credit with Northwest University! Northwest University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, at the same level as all major universities such as the UW and WSU. Beginning in September 2017, Advanced Placement Biology, Advanced Placement Chemistry, Anatomy/Physiology and Environmental Science will now offer King’s students the ability to earn up to 15 University science credits. These credits will be recorded on a Northwest University transcript in the same manner as all other earned credits without any special coding denoting how or where they are earned and credits earned at NU are transferrable to other universities. Students will receive specific information about signing up for the concurrent credit during the first few days of the course. As we continue to grow possibilities in STEM education, we are excited to offer this opportunity to students and parents!
