In general, Honors courses are more advanced version of classes already offered. (In a few cases, courses are labeled as Honors simply based on difficulty, even if there is not a “regular” version of the course.)
For example, students can choose between regular Geometry and Honors Geometry, or regular Biology and Honors Biology. In most cases, the overall content is similar, but the Honors class moves at a more accelerated pace so that additional topics can be covered. In addition, reading material, papers and projects may be more challenging and in-depth.
