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 are incorporated in all Honors courses at Lewis-Palmer High School. Honors Courses are NOT weighted, although colleges still consider them advanced academics.
Honors Courses are as follows:
- Honors English I, II
- Honors Civics & Economics
- Honors American History
- Honors Geometry
- Honors Biology
AP Classes are also available for upper-level advanced coursework.
Honors Courses can be found in the Registration and Course Handbook.
