Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors Classes
AP courses gives students the opportunity to do college-level courses while in high school. The benefits include earning college credits along with starting at a higher placement in college courses. The CollegeBoard determines AP curricula.
Honors courses are similar to regular classes but are more indepth and acedemically challenging than regular classes. Honors curricula can be determined by state officials, administrators as well as the teachers.
We have many AP and Honors courses. Students, please check with your counselor and teachers for placement.
Due to Covid-19, summer assignments for AP or Honors classes are optional for students to continue learning. If you have any questions please contact the AP or Honors teacher.
