The honors curriculum is offered by invitation only. Honors invitations are based on prior performance in predictor courses. It is designed to provide the highly motivated and self-disciplined student with an opportunity to pursue a variety of subject areas in an intensely challenging academic environment. The course work will be sophisticated and demanding, frequently requiring the student to participate in independent
research, to analyze facts and evaluate information. The student must also anticipate that each honors course selected will require an extensive time commitment beyond the scheduled classroom. A student who reflects the appropriate intellectual mindset, who can demonstrate a superior academic effort and is willing to dedicate the required time for each selected Honors (HON) class should be successful in this program. The levels of instruction are:
HON: Honors - Requires a strong command of basic skills and is extremely rigorous. This is equivalent to the demands of a college level course.
ACC: Accelerated - Requires a good command of basic skills and the ability to perform in a rigorous program at a rapid pace. This is a college prep course.
CP: College Prep - Requires a command of basic skills and is moderately paced. This is a college prep course.
MOD: Modified - Reinforces and builds upon basic skills.
PR: Pullout Replacement - Special Education.
*A: Adapted Instruction - Instruction that requires significant curricular adaptations to the scope, assessments, and/or grading for the course and further reflected on the transcript.
