    Students wishing to enroll in courses with high school credit MUST meet the following requirements.

     

    SPACE IS LIMITED IN ALL COURSES!

     

    Honors GSE Algebra I

     

    Course Description:

    GSE is the first mathematics course of three required for graduation. The critical areas, organized into units, deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, lay a foundation in quadratic and exponential reasoning, and compare and contrast the functions for a greater depth of knowledge. The final unit in the course deals with describing data and interpreting linear models. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

    The state mandated Georgia Milestones End of Course Assessment is required and counts 20% of the student’s overall course grade

     

    Prerequiste:

    • Successful completion of the 7th grade math acceleration course with a final average at or above an 80

               OR

    • Successful completion of Grade 8 Mathematics

     

    Honors Geometry I 

     

    Course Description:

    The focus of Geometry on the coordinate plane is organized into 6 critical areas. Transformations on the coordinate plane provide opportunities for the formal study of congruence and similarity. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. The study of circles uses similarity and congruence to develop basic theorems relating circles and lines. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. The use of previous geometric concepts such as distance, midpoint, and slope will be used to verify algebraically geometric relationships of figures in the coordinate plane. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

     

    Prerequiste:

    • Successful completion of GSE Algebra I

     

    Honors Physical Science

     

    Course Description:

    The Physical Science curriculum is designed to continue student investigations of the physical sciences that began in grades K-8 and provide students the necessary skills to have a richer knowledge base in physical science. This course is designed as a survey course of chemistry and physics. This curriculum includes the more abstract concepts such as the conceptualization of the structure of atoms, motion and forces, and the conservation of energy and matter, the action/reaction principle, and wave behavior. Students investigate physical science concepts through experience in laboratories and field work using the processes of inquiry. 

    The state mandated Georgia Milestones End of Course Assessment is required and counts 20% of the student’s overall course grade

     

    Prerequiste:

    • Successful completion of the 7th grade math and ELA courses with a final average at or above a 75.

     

    Honors Spanish I

     

    Course Description:

    In this course students begin developing proficiency in the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing Spanish. It is a vocabulary-rich environment where survival skills are taught along with cultural information about the many Spanish-speaking countries. Activities include dialogue, role-playing, celebrations, films, videos, recordings, games, food study and other activities which provide an overview of the language.

     

    Prerequiste:

    • Successful completion of all 7th grade courses with a final average at or above an 80

     

    Visual Arts/Composition Art I

     

    Course Description:

    This course introduces art history, art criticism, aesthetic judgment and studio production. It emphasizes the ability to understand and use elements and principles of design through a variety of media, processes, and visual resources. Coursework explores master artworks for historical and cultural significance.

     

    Prerequiste:

     

     

    Honors Algebra I, Honors Geometry Honors Physical Science, and Honors Spanish I
