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

The science-intensive high school will begin classes on August 7 for about 100 students. Eighth-grade students enrolled in schools that feed into Phoenix Union High School District are eligible. Seventy have been selected.

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 the Phoenix Preparatory Academy at 735 E. Fillmore St. until construction of the $9.5 million campus at 512 E. Pierce St. is completed in the spring of 2007.
