Biology Keystone Review Resources

Students currently enrolled in biology (all levels) will take the Biology Keystone Exam in May.

Pennsylvania requires that all students complete an end-of-year exam after the completion of their high school biology course, nad as it stands, this is a graduation requirement. Therefore, students need to do their best on these tests so they will not have to worry about remediating and retesting at a later date.

In order to give themselves the best chance possible, students must take their classwork seriously, and use the review opportunities in place wisely. If you have questions or concerns, please raise them as soon as possible, so we can do our best to support you.
