The first three courses in our High School Mathematics sequence (Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2) align with the first three courses in the traditional pathway of the Common Core State Standards. The two Algebra courses contain most of the standards in number and quantity, algebra, and functions. The Geometry course covers geometry standards from a transformational perspective.

Rocklin's Mathematics curriculum create a strong foundation for Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Rocklin offers AP Calculus (Calculus AB/Calculus BC), a set of two distinct Advanced Placement calculus courses, and AP Statistics.

These AP exams are offered by the American College Board. Rocklin International School is a College Board approved testing site for the Advanced Placement program, which allows students to complete AP classes and the AP exams at our campus.​


Our High School Level Science Curriculum takes the foundation provided in primary and middle school and expands the study of science into the high school courses. Students are challenged in each course to explain more in-depth investigations and knowledge related to different fields of science study. The High School Science curriculum will consist of Biology with lab, Chemistry with lab , Physics with lab, and AP Biology .

AP Biology is also offered as an introductory college-level biology course.
Students learn core concepts through a variety of instructional and assessment methods including inquiry-based activities, in-class demonstrations, student-led discussions, and real-world applications designed to enhance student learning.
