Things to consider when choosing classes:
Keep your grades up
Take challenging courses, but be realistic.
What are your ‘outside of school’ commitments?
What other activities are you involved in?
Who should consider Honors or AP courses? TAG (Talented and Gifted) students Students whose ability level requires significant acceleration of the standard curriculum. Highly Motivated Learners Students who can work at a high level of competence and accept a highly rigorous challenge.
How do I enroll in Honors or AP?
Carefully consider your level of preparation and commitment to the content area as well as your personal interests and passions. Pursue challenge in those areas where you posses the highest interest and ability.
Examine your current level of performance. Examine your standardized test scores. If these are both in the above average to advanced range, you are a good candidate for Honors or AP courses .
Discuss your desire for Honors and AP with your current teacher. Your current teacher is often the best judge of your preparedness. OBTAIN YOUR CURRENT TEACHER’S SIGNATURE ON THE REGISTRATION PLANNING SHEET.
Last minute reminders!!
