Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement (AP) classes are available at all GPS high schools.
AP courses prepare students to take the national Advanced Placement examination given in the late spring of each school year.
Students may be granted advanced placement status and/or college credit on the basis of how well they perform on these tests. Information regarding advanced placement courses and examinations is available from the counseling office of each high school.
Students are not required to take an advanced placement course to be eligible to take the advanced placement examination; however, students enrolled in AP courses are expected to take the AP exam.
AP/Honors classes are not available to homebound students. For more information see the Guidance and Counseling office or please visit www.apcentral.collegeboard.com.

*Some of our students will opt to take AP examinations for which there is not an associated class at HHS. These exams include, but are not limited to the following: European History, Music Theory, and Spanish Language.
The high school honors curriculum is designed to provide academic acceleration and enrichment of the able and ambitious student. Although you may take Advanced Placement classes at HHS without having been in an honors class, those students who have been in our honors courses find that the acceleration may better prepare them for the rigors of Advanced Placement coursework.
Honors Courses are offered in the following areas:
- Laboratory Science
