What is the Honors Program at LPHS?
Honors courses at LPHS stress academic excellence and rigor. Courses are designed to purposefully teach in-depth content in an interactive classroom environment. Honors courses extend the ideas and content of the required standards- based curriculum by differentiating content, process, and product expectations and/or include a technology component that goes beyond that which would normally be done in the non-Honors course of a similar name. Course content integrates information from other disciplines, features topics dealing with world cultures and the humanities, emphasizes critical thinking, student-directed learning, interpersonal skills, and includes a variety of instructional strategies. Extensive reading and
writing is incorporated in all Honors courses at Lewis-Palmer High School. Honors Courses are NOT weighted, although colleges still consider them as advanced academics.
Honors Courses are as follows*:
- Honors English I, II
- Honors Civics
- Honors American History
- Honors Geometry
*AP Classes are also available for upper level advanced coursework.
Please Note: Enrollment into Honors Classes is based on space-availability. You do not have to be part of the Gifted Ed program to take an Honors Class.
Honors Courses for the 2016-2017 school year can be found in the Scheduling and Course Handbook.
