Key

To meet different student goals and aspirations, we offer four course levels: essential, college prep, honors, and AP. The levels vary in subject matter and difficulty and prepare students in different ways:

e

Essential Course

p

College Prep Course

h

Honors Course

ap

AP Course

Essential courses have modified rigor, yet include all course content.

Middle school courses taken at the college prep level are designed to prepare students for secondary study within the course content and discipline. College prep courses taken in high school are designed to prepare students for higher study at the post-secondary level.

Honors courses are designed to challenge students beyond the college prep level and result in a weighted GPA. Enrollment in an honors course requires a grade of B or higher in prior course discipline coursework.

Advanced Placement courses are designed to prepare high school students for college-level work by offering college-level curriculum. Students who decide to follow the AP course with an AP test and achieve a qualifying test score may earn college credit.

One Level

One level courses are accessible to all students and are only offered at this one curriculum level.
