Honors and Advanced Placement Courses

The following Honors courses are considered subject area foundation work and do not receive weighted credit: 9th and 10th grade Honors English, Honors Algebra I, Honors Geometry, Honors Algebra II, Honors World History, and Honors Economics.

The Alhambra United School District offers weighted credit for Advanced Placement (AP) and 11th and 12th grade Honors (H) courses, which have been approved by the University of California (UC) for an additional grade point credit.

UC grants special “honors” designation and an extra grade point credit only to honors courses designated for 11th and 12th graders who have already completed foundation work in a subject area. [Tenth grade students who have the necessary preparation to complete UC designated honors courses (i.e. those designed for 11th and 12th graders) will receive UC honors credit; however, they will not receive credit for more than two classes completed in the tenth grade.]
