Honors & Advanced Placement


The Monroe School District Honors program is offered in middle school and provides the prerequisite skills needed to be successful in future Advanced Placement classes. Students will develop this necessary foundation through instruction in the regular curriculum with an emphasis on higher-order thinking skills, abstract reasoning and critical reading/writing skills. Students in the Honors program are expected to be self-motivated, self-directed and able to maintain high quality work.

Students must qualify for the Honors program through an application process to ensure their success in the class. Honors classes provide a self-contained classroom environment. However, if there is not sufficient enrollment for a class, the students will be served in the regular classroom by clustering students. You can find the required application here.

Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) program provides an opportunity for students to take college level courses while enrolled in high school. Monroe High School currently offers 14 AP courses. Students may earn college credits by passing the exam at the end of the course provided by the College Board. Please see the current MHS Course Guide for a listing of available AP courses.
