ence or science-related careers of which the student may not have been previously aware. Many
Kohler High School students pursue science degrees, and having the college prep courses makes
the student an attractive candidate to the admissions department of these colleges and universi-
ties.
The college prep science classes provide challenges as well. Often, specific content is cov-
ered in greater depth. Students must connect in-class learning to real-life application, and class
discussions cover current events relating to the subject. In addition, the classes seek to improve
time management and problem-solving skills, often using state-of-the-art technology as tools.
Finally, enrichment opportunities are frequently provided to allow students to take the topic a step
further.
Currently, there are not enough students on this track to allow courses for AP track students.
Kohler High School realizes this track may not be desirable for those students who prefer to bal-
ance their academic coursework with extracurricular activities. The Kohler High School philos-
ophy focuses on providing an avenue for students to experience an in-depth science course
whether or not they plan to major in science in college. Students who participate are able to take
the AP exams, which require extra work. For example, students on the AP Biology track (with-
in Advanced Honors Biology) move at a faster pace with additional work out of class that often
limits available time to participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, music, and math
team.
The time involved to prepare for the AP exam is often the reason students choose not to par-
ticipate. However, this year 12 students have taken the AP Biology test and 4 have taken the AP
Chemistry test. Most students realize some colleges and universities offer their own placement
exams for free, and therefore they elect not to take the advanced placement (AP) exams. Yet oth-
ers take the exams to try to stand out during the admissions process and test out of certain col-
lege classes.
Having teachers involved in state and national programs has offered Kohler High School
insight regarding the standards and benchmarks necessary for students’ success in high school
science classes. Ms. Krejcarek currently serves on the College Board Advance Placement
Chemistry Commission directed by the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C.,
whose charge is to rewrite the AP science courses. Both teachers feel their experiences have
enhanced their classes. Jessie Good states, “It is rewarding to provide an opportunity for students
to experience complex science concepts using state of the art science equipment. It is exciting to
watch and guide students as they grow and discover their own abilities and interests.”
Mr. Jeff Dickert, Superintendent of Kohler Schools, commented, “While Kohler High School
does not have a course specifically titled AP Biology or AP Chemistry, our school offers more
than the AP course; yet dedicated students can get the AP materials and take the test. What small
schools with wonderfully competent and committed teachers have to do is get creative and pro-
vide whatever they can that advances our students interests and needs. Ms. Krejcarek and Ms.
Good have committed more of their time and talent to provide the AP experience and much more
to their students. The Kohler School, and especially their students, is truly fortunate. We have the
best of both worlds in our science department. This will continue to keep our science ACT scores
at the top of the State of Wisconsin Public Schools.”
