International Science Essay Competition

The Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science is sponsoring an international science essay competition for high school students.  I am writing to ask your help in sharing this information with students in your schools who may be interested in participating.

By providing an interdisciplinary forum for sharing undergraduate research, the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science highlights the important and exciting work being done by Dartmouth students and faculty.  Through the international science essay competition, the undergraduate editorial board seeks to include a broader array of voices in exploring the recent effects and future promise of science in our society.  A complete explanation of the contest, along with rules for participation, can be found online.

Schedule Update

Please keep in mind that besides taking a BHS course, students with schedule conflicts have the below options:
Option 1: Sign up for VHS. VHS is an on-line program that allows students to enroll in an on-line course. If you need to add one course that isn’t considered a graduation requirement, please feel free to sign up.

Although the program is available for schedule conflicts, this program can also be used for students in grade 10, 11 or 12 that wish to further advance in a specific academic area, take an AP course, or take a course that BHS does not offer.  Please click here for a link to the VHS Guidelines and click here for an application.
Option 2: Sign up for a Bay Path College Course. Bay Path College will offer a fall 2012 course. Students may enroll in this course in lieu of a Burlington High School course for the fall semester. Please remember that students are granted college credits for successful completion of this course. Please click here for an application. 

Lastly, if a student did NOT get into their first choice elective course, please call 781-270-1780 to be added to a waitlist for that course.
