My high school has "Java Programming in 3D with ALICE" as a semester-long class. The teacher gives us a goal and we do stuff in Alice that fulfills the requirements. It's what you would call an "Easy Class" since in terms of Computer Science the teacher themselves generally are learning how to do it at the same time you are (Though often with more experience in the subject). The case is the same this year in AP Computer Science AB, because they changed the subject from C to Java, and the teacher only knows C.
The Alice class counts as an Elective and has a prerequisite of taking Computer Applications (Using Windows for Dummies.) I believe that prerequisite will go away now that Computer Apps is no longer a required class to graduate.
