The Palm Beach Post reported that AICE course registrations are overtaking AP course registrations in Palm Beach County schools. According to the Post, there are about 10,500 AICE registrations this year, compared to about 11,300 AP registrations.
Of course, science is a fairly small part of this picture. But the AICE science numbers are revealing. According to numbers available at the FLDOE website, there are 1,988 AICE course registrations in science this year in Palm Beach County.
78% of them – 1,551 course registrations – are in Marine Science, which is a highly popular subject among students.
And of course there is no AP course in Marine Science.
