Advanced Placement & Honors

Honors Courses

Skyline High School offers eight Honors level classes. These classes take the subject matter to an increased depth compared to the non-Honors version of the class. Honors classes for freshmen and sophomores are also weighted. An A counts as 4.5 on a 4.0 scale.

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses:

Skyline High School participates in the College Board’s National Advanced Placement (AP) program with 23 weighted-grade course options

Upon completion of an AP course, a student may choose to take the AP examination in May. A student’s score on the examination may grant credit and/or placement in a higher-level course upon entry in a college/university. The cost of the examination is the student’s responsibility.

Advanced Placement courses will be weighted as follows: A=5.0; B=4.0; C=3.0; D=2.0; F=0.
