Twelfth Grade Overview



American Studies (2012-2013):

  • US History: 
  • AP U.S. History: This course is designed to provide a college-level experience and preparation for the AP U.S. History Exam.  An emphasis is placed on interpreting documents, mastering a significant body of factual information, and writing critical essays.  More...
  • American Literature  
  • AP English Literature and Composition: Throughout the year, we will engage in a college-level study of American writers of the 19th and 20th century and elements of literary composition. The literature that we read will offer a varied and informative portrait of American culture: from 1880-1960, from New York to Alaska. Our authors are male and female, black, white, and Chicano, wealthy and impoverished.  More... 


European Studies (2013-2014):


  • European History:  European History will address the cultural, political, diplomatic, social, and economic aspects of modern Europe, focusing primarily on period between the 15th century and the present day. In addition to developing an understanding of these principal themes, students will continue to develop the ability to analyze historical evidence, and to express that understanding and analysis effectively through writing and projects. More...
  • AP European History: 
  • AP English Language and Composition: This course is designed to engage students in a beginning-college level study of  composition.  We will work to develop continued sophistication as readers and writers, with special attention to developing a broader and deeper understanding of rhetoric and how language works. Students will develop their ability to work with language and text with a greater awareness of purpose and strategy, while strengthening compositional skills. More...



  • Discrete Math:
  • AP Calculus: AP Calculus AB is equivalent to a college level 1st semester course in calculus. We focus on learning the principles and applications of limits, differentiation, and integration through verbal, algebraic, numeric, and graphical representations.  Applications to the physical and social sciences will be an integral part of the course.



  • Environmental Studies (2012-2013)
  • AP Chemistry (2012-2013)
  • Physics (2013-2014): This course immerses students in the mechanics of motion, as well as the fundamentals of energy, electricity, and magnetism.  Physics builds on some concepts covered in Chemistry (e.g., quantum mechanics, wave/particle duality) and integrates nicely with Calculus (e.g., derivation of the laws of motion using integrals and derivatives).
  • AP Biology (2013-2014)



  • Spanish Literature and Culture

         In the AP Spanish Literature classroom, students will read from a broad spectrum of works written in various times and places and      representing different literary genres.  Students taking the exam will be asked to perform specific types of tasks after months of analyzing      the works on the reading list under their teacher’s guidance. Students who are ready to attempt the AP Exam will have acquired an      in-depth familiarity with all of the works on the list, and in order to do well they must command a variety of skills. First of all, they should      be prepared to write timed analytical essays. More..



  • Capstone Project:  As senior students near the end of their Woodlawn experience, the Capstone Project provides the opportunity students to demonstrate their understanding and fulfillment of the school’s mission.  Students meet requirements throughout the year that address each part of the mission statement.  Through successful completion of the Capstone Project, students demonstrate their mastery of the school’s core values.  Thus, they are ready to move forward as graduates of Woodlawn School. More...



  • Various:  Students have the opportunity to take one elective course each trimester.  Courses are offered in visual arts, performing arts, healthy living, sciences, and humanities.
