Honors Classes

What are Honors classes?

Students have the opportunity to take certain academic classes at the Honors level. Honors classes offer students a more rigorous course of study and prepare students to take Advanced Placement (AP) classes. Students in Honors classes should expect that the demands will be higher than that of a regular class.

Benefits of Honors Classes

  1. Increased academic rigor.
  2. Preparation for AP courses.
  3. Extra point towards the student's Grade Point Average (GPA) when receiving a "C" or better in the course. For example, an "A" in a Honors classes is 5 points versus only 4 points for an "A" in a regular class. This is how many students are able to earn higher than a 4.0 GPA.
