* Honors/AP Guidelines:
Honors classes (9, 10), and AP classes (11, 12) are offered to those students who qualify through performance in courses leading to the Honors or Advanced Placement classes. The classes are designed for those who score at or above the 80th percentile on standardized achievement tests in reading, math, and/or science, or who have shown superior performance in previous traditional science courses. Teacher/counselor recommendations are considered.
ENTRY/EXIT POLICY: In placing students, consideration will be given to student performance in the current science class, with teacher/counselor recommendation. Honors students may be rescheduled to Traditional classes based on poor performance and after evaluation by the teacher/counselor. An honors class may be taken later after it is apparent the student can handle more demanding work.
