Grades 7-8 students have an opportunity to participate in an Advanced Honors program. It is based on four criteria: achievement test scores, report card grades, teacher recommendation, and parent approval. Students in Advanced Honors will have completed 9th grade coursework in three subject areas: Mathematics, Science, and Literature. Advanced Honors grades will be weighted an extra five percentage points on the report card. An overall “B” average must be maintained to stay in the Advanced Honors program.
