Honors/Advanced Placement Courses

Placement in certain Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses is by recommendation from current year’s teachers and subject supervisors. The recommendation is based on demonstrated ability as evidenced by course evaluations, grades and standardized test results. Students in Honors/AP courses are expected to learn more independently with deeper understanding and at a faster pace.

In order to be invited into a sequential Honors/AP course, a current Honors student must, at the time of recommendations, achieve and maintain at least a C+ grade in the current course and have the recommendation of his/her teacher. Qualified students without a recommendation may have access to sequential Honors/AP courses through a waiver (see Waiver Process).

Certain non-sequential AP and Honors courses are available by student choice. See Program of Studies for more details.
