High School Level
Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement courses offer highly motivated students the opportunity to take college-level classes in high school. AP programs are available at every high school and are designed to challenge students in various content areas and prepare them to take the Advanced Placement (AP) Exam. AP courses on a student’s transcript enhance college applications, and a qualifying score on an AP exam can mean that a student is eligible to receive college credit at a college/university. AP offerings vary by school and are dependent upon course enrollment.
Honors courses, which are considered Pre-Advanced Placement programs, are available at every high school and are designed to challenge students in several content areas and prepare them for enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) coursework.
