Honors Application Process

Students must complete an application letter to their current English teacher by January 25th. Please note that final placement in Honors is contingent upon continued excellent work in the second semester. If a student falls below expectations, honors admission may be revoked.

Appeal Process

Students must first meet with their English teacher to receive information about why they were not originally placed in the selected class. Then, students may send an email to the English Department Chair, Nora Miller, describing why an appeal for Honors/AP placement should be granted. The appeal is due by February 4th and should include:

  • Full Name
  • Current English Class and Teacher
  • Reason original application was denied
  • Reason for appeal
  • Detailed description of personal goals for achievement for the course.

Appeals submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
