Honors programs are offered to meet the academic needs of all students in grades 6-8. These courses require students to have advanced skills in math and/or reading in order to meet the course performance expectations. Rubrics are used to determine if a student is eligible and the likelihood of success in these courses. The rubrics consist of a combination of test scores, student grades and teacher recommendations from previous years.
