Advanced Placement Program
Incoming Students: The Placement Committee uses standardized test scores, academic record, and teacher recommendations to determine a student’s track placement. Many students are placed on a single track for all courses, while some with diverging abilities may be placed into courses at different levels (for example, higher level for a strong subject and lower levels for all other courses).
Returning Students: Current students register for the upcoming school year in January. In March, students sign up for the next year’s courses, in coordination with their teachers, parents, and guidance counselor. At that time, students choose their electives and discuss any changes in track placement. The academic assistant principal makes the final decision on course and track placement for students.
Honors courses are offered in English, mathematics, social studies, science, foreign language, and computer education. Students placed in the Honors track are allowed to continue enrolling in Honors courses as long as they maintain an “A” or “B” average. Students with grades of “C” may be allowed to continue enrolling in Honors courses only on the approval of their guidance counselor and the academic assistant principal, in consultation with parents.
