Honors Classes

Students in 6th and 7th grade are beginning the process of signing up for honors classes for the 20-21 school year. We offer an honors option for English, science and social studies. Anyone can choose to take an honors class. By doing this you are helping to prepare yourself for honors and AP classes in high school.

Honors classes are not an accelerated class. The same standards are being taught but the class will move at a faster pace and go into a greater depth on those same standards. Students will also experience a greater degree of independence. They will not find that it is more work, just more challenging. Middle school honors classes do not earn high school credit.

If your student is willing to work hard, do their best work, has strong reading and writing skills, is able to work independently most of the time and is eager to explore new concepts in English, science or social studies then he or she should consider signing up for one or more honors classes.

We guarantee that anyone who registers who receive at least one honors class. Due to scheduling conflicts we cannot guarantee that students will be enrolled in all the classes requested.
