Honors Program

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.
