Three instructional levels are offered-honors, academic and college preparatory-as well as honors-level independent study in nearly all disciplines. A special emphasis is placed on technology in the classroom. Honors and academic-level English students are required to take two years of foreign language (as listed below). College preparatory English students and students enrolled in the Language Support Program are not required to meet the foreign language requirement, except in unusual circumstances.
