Honors Program

  • Honors courses at PRHS 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. Honors Courses are NOT weighted, although colleges still consider them as advanced academics.

     

    Please Note: Enrollment into Honors Classes is based on space-availability.

    Honors Courses can be found in the Course Guide (found in the Registration Materials on the Counseling Department's Academics page).

    AP Classes are also available for upper level advanced coursework
