Placement Information for Honors Courses

If you are interested in Geometry Honors, Algebra 2 Honors (including the Double-Block course), or Pre-Calculus Honors you must take the placement exam for the course. Though the testing process is open to all students, honors classes are ideal for students that love challenging mathematics course work and can justify their solutions to math problems clearly with words, diagrams, equations, and graphs.  These students are expected to complete on average 45 minutes to 1 hour nightly on homework, projects, and other supplemental work.  Students are expected to show perseverance in solving complex problems.
