Piedmont High School : Achieve the Honorable

Honors Program

In an effort to encourage our students to take demanding, advanced academic work, Piedmont High School offers courses designated as HONORS. These courses meet the University of California honors course guidelines and, if designated AP, prepare students for Advanced Placement examinations. Honors and Advanced Placement classes typically require additional projects and reading. Students selecting these courses are expected to spend considerably more time in preparation outside of class. The grading standard for these classes is very rigorous.

Once a student has been placed in an honors or Advanced Placement class, it is generally not possible to change to a regular class in the same subject area.

The following courses are designated HONORS:


Students wishing to enroll in any of these courses should read the description in the PHS Course Catalog carefully to be sure that all prerequisites have been met.
