Phoenix Union High School District officials are looking for eligible students with a deep interest in science to become the first class of students enrolled at the new Bioscience High School in downtown Phoenix.

The science-intensive high school will begin classes in August for about 100 students. Eighth-grade students enrolled in schools that feed into Phoenix Union High School District are eligible.

A full, integrated high school curriculum will be offered, including world languages and performance and visual arts. Officials also hope to offer unique science-specific courses such as bioinformatics, robotics, forensics, microbiology, bioengineering, environmental science, and thermal dynamics.

The students will be taught initially at a temporary location until construction of the $9.5 million campus is completed in the spring of 2007. Officials are still looking for an interim site with about five classrooms of at least 900 square feet each.
